Damian Conway (TheDamian
), one of the world's most renowned members of the Perl community (as a programmer, CPAN author, writer and speaker), is coming to Portugal, this September's 12th and 13th, to lecture his Perl Best Practices course, in an event organized and sponsored by log.
Apart from being one of the people pointing Perl 6 in the right direction, Damian is the author of the much appraised "Object Oriented Perl" and "Perl Best Practices" books. He is also the creator of some astounding CPAN modules, including Getopt::Euclid, IO::Prompt, Lingua::Romana::Perligata, Parse::RecDescent, Smart::Comments, Switch and Text::Autoformat.
More information on the event can be attained in log's webpage (in Portuguese) or by contacting jose dot castro at log dot pt directly.
