The 2013 Perl Quality Assurance Hackathon was originally slated to be held in London, however due to pressures outside of their control the original organiser has had to step down. This left the event in slight freefall from which Ian Norton and Mark Keating of Shadowcat have arrested the descent.
The chance to hold a major Perl event in the North West of England has been a desire for both of these two men since they first formed the local Perl Mongers g roup. Although it is very hard to encourage participation in such a vast region, and with an ever changing technological landscape, they have persevered and the hosting of this event is a part of that perseverance.
There is little doubt that other members of the Shadowcat family will become entwined in the event, both in planning and execution, as the time moves on. We may also get the chance to show selected people around the Castle Shadowcat offices. We will certainly be able to offer them an insight into the unique character of the region.
