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

Since last time, a lot has happened, and TPRF is excited to help create
this venue for sharing news  with developers from Europe and across the
globe.  Many FOSDEM visitors have a background using Perl, but may have
missed out on recent developments.
Larry Wall himself  was a guest speaker at FOSDEM  in 2015  to announce
Perl 6, which was later renamed to Raku.  Much has happened since then,
and there is lots to share!

## Participation

TPRF would like to offer contributors to Perl,  Raku,  their ecosystems
and modules,  or any other FOSS projects the opportunity to participate
at this exciting annual event in Brussels.  The TPRF-FOSDEM  organisers
are specifically  looking for anyone  with a compelling  story to share
about their Open Source project that has a strong background in Raku or

Do you have  something fascinating  or new to  share with the  Perl and
Raku communities?

Then **do not hesitate** to  submit your  presentation proposal.  Visit
the [FOSDEM 2024 Pretalx website](https://pretalx.fosdem.org/fosdem-2024/cfp)
and fill in the form.  There is a  _limited availability_  for speakers
to give a 20 minute engaging presentation.

**Deadline for submissions is December 1st, 2023.**
