During the German Perl Workshop, Michael Kröll (PEPL) and me hacked together a quick and dirty way to get the attention of all those "attendees", who use conferences mainly for uninterrupted IRCing.

We wrote an IRC-Bot that posts the content of my slides to an IRC channel.

In this half funny, half technical talk I will present the problem and our solution to it. Which involves JavaScript/AJAX, CGI-scripting, FIFOs and writing an IRC bot.
