Hi Alan,

Nice action!

Perhaps you could have a look at
http://www.perlfoundation.org/perl5/index.cgi?events so you can
already encourage people to participate in the specific events.

> 28th, 2010 at Thiruvalla, Kerala, India.
> It was my first BarCamp, and the first other conference/camp that I
> ever attended apart from last year's YAPC::EU::2009 (which was a great
> experience, by the way!). I was very interested in having Perl
> promoted among a community that uses/promotes other programming
> languages. So, I thought of giving a talk and selected the title 'Y
> Perl?'. The talk concentrated on why Perl should be considered when
> there are myriad programming languages. Highlights were on the latest
> buzzwords in Perl, namely Catalyst, Moose and Padre, the community
> efforts such as Send-a-Newbie, Perl Monks and Perl Mongers.
> Blog posts, pictures and tweets have been made on the session. You can
> find some at: 
> http://groups.google.com/group/barcampkerala/browse_thread/thread/36028067cac6393f
> And, most of all, some people met me, expressing their interest in
> learning the Perl language. I am glad that I was able to encourage
> them to start taking up Perl. :-)
> I am also intending to attend other camps/conferences (near and far),
> with the same motto of introducing/promoting Perl.
