This has been true for some time but I finally realized I should mention it here for posterity. Videos of many of the talks from this workshop are online on the Presenting Perl website.

Our thanks goes out to Robin Miller and Mark Keating for the video production, and to Matt Trout and ShadowCat for the hosting on Presenting Perl.
