A couple of years ago we held the PerlHike::IT. Even though there were just 2 of us, it marked a "first time" for the Italian Perl Community, and we hope to repeat it in summer 2010.
For the winter (not necessarily this winter), I am planning to probe around if there's interest in a PerlSki::IT. Joining Perl and skiing is not a new idea, but the plan is to make something more geek than a day on the slopes.
The event should at least feature:
- a day or two skiing
- talks (at least some lightning ones), possibly renting a small room one afternoon
- a night out (hotel, friend's house, apartment, tent, ...)
- food and beer in the evening
For my own personal convenience, the event could be held in the world-known Cortina d'Ampezzo town, in the heart of the dolomites. It's a fairly easy reach from Treviso and Venezia airports, and I can even host a couple of folks in a small apartment not far from Cortina. Other accomodation can be arranged in nearby towns.
So, if there's any interest, or any suggestion for some other places (there should be at least one Perl folk there to help arrange things), just post. ;-)
