FOSDEM 2024 Call for Participation
The Perl & Raku Foundation is thrilled to announce that the FOSDEM
organising team has accepted our proposal to set up a DevRoom on
Saturday, February 3rd 2024. It has been quite a few years since the
last Perl DevRoom at FOSDEM.
Historically, they have always been well attended and packed.
## Time for an Update

globe. Many FOSDEM visitors have a background using Perl, but may have

## About The Perl & Raku Foundation
TPRF is dedicated to the advancement of the Perl and Raku programming
languages, through open discussions, collaboration, design, and code.
The Perl and Raku Foundation's desire is to build a strong, healthy and
sustainable language ecosystem and community. The TPRF grant programs
help fund development of open source projects to benefit Perl, Raku and
the broader community. The foundation helps to sponsor many events,
worldwide, each year. Open source development depends on events like
FOSDEM, which allow developers to come together in person and share
ideas, code, and have fun.
