It's just over a month until this year's Swiss Perl Workshop in Villars-sur-Ollon. We already have Damian speaking as well as a few talks submit on topics such as: starting afresh with Mojolicious up to building an API using Swagger, profiling with Devel::NYTProf and memory leak tracing, high precision math in Perl 6, and using perl and Java together; but of course we would like more!

If you would like to attend this year's Swiss Perl Workshop and give a talk then please register and submit a talk. Your talk can be short (5 or 10 minutes) or longer (20, 40, or even 120 minutes) and we welcome talks on any topic, not just perl.
