We are proud to announce the first International Hacking RDF with Perl 
Hackathon in Oslo in Norway from the 19th to the 21st of April 2010. Note 
that we have moved the event to Oslo from Geilo and that it is now a pure 
Perl+RDF hacking event.

These prominent Perl hackers are leading the event:

Gregory Todd Williams is the author of RDF::Trine and RDF::Query. He is a 
Ph.D. student at the Tetherless World Constellation group at the Rensselaer 
Polytechnic Institute and a prominent member of the SPARQL Working Group, 
where he is the editor of SPARQL 1.1 Service Description.

Toby Inkster is the author of a large number of RDF-related Perl modules on 
CPAN, including RDFa parsers, HTML5 microdata parsers, FOAF+SSL 
authentication modules, etc. He is also a co- inventor of the FOAF+SSL 

Kjetil Kjernsmo is the local organiser, and has been following the RDF 
world since 1998. He prefers to write in Perl and has a few relevant 
modules on CPAN including RDF::RDFa::Template. While a member of the 
Semantic Web Education and Outreach IG, he took the initiative to the 
Community Projects, that lead to the Linked Open Data project. He has also 
been a member of the POWDER and SPARQL WGs.

The hackathon will convene at 13:00 local time on Monday 19th of April and 
run through Wednesday 21st of April. The venue is the offices of ABC 
Startsiden with the address Sagveien 21a.

We will identify a number of subjects that would be interesting to hack on 
leading up to the event. The discussion will take place on the perlrdf 
mailing list, see http://lists.perlrdf.org/listinfo/dev , please add 
yourself and see prior posts in the archives.

The current concensus centers around:

    * RDFS reasoning
    * ACL-protected subclass of RDF::Trine::Store based on RDF::ACL.
    * Finish RDF::Endpoint.
    * Use FOAF+SSL to limit access to data on the endpoint using RDF::ACL.

Further topics are welcomed and the agenda will be adjusted according to 
wishes of the participants.

Participants will need to organize transportation and accomodation for 
themselves, but there is no conference fee.

Please state your interest by sending me an email.
