The second event that I am looking forward to is "London Perl Workshop - 2019". This time, it is happening a little earlier than usual i.e. Saturday 19th October 2019. There is a change in venue as well, this year it is happening at David Game College, 31 Jewry St, London EC3N 2ET. They are still accepting talks, If you have anything interesting to talk about then please submit your talk now. If you are keen to sponsor the event, then please take a look at Sponsorship levels.
