I work for Angelo State University as somewhat of a Windows server administrator. I am the founding member of the San Angelo Perl Mongers. I'm fairly new to the Perl Community at large.

I can be found on irc in #yapc, #news, and #win32. I'm trying to help out with the win32.perl.org project. I've recently acquired a PAUSE ID and might have a module or two on the CPAN (by the time you read this). http://search.cpan.org/~jfluhmann/ [cpan.org]

I am also one of the organizers for YAPC::NA 2007.

The deadline for submissions this year is June 1st (as we would like to announce the 2009 venue at this year's YAPC::NA). You can get all of the details and see the Call for Venue posting on The Perl Foundation's blog.

  YAPC::NA 2009 Call for Venue on 2008.03.27 9:57 jfluhmann

Welcome, once again, to the Yet Another Perl Conference, North America Call For Venue! The 2009 YAPC::NA marks the 10th anniversary for YAPC. Wow, 10 years of YAPC! This year we've decided to try something a little different. After some discussion and feedback, we've decided to take an approach similar to YAPC::EU. We're putting out the request for bids now, with a June 1 deadline. This gives the Conferences Committee time to review the bids and make a decision to be announced at this year's YAPC::NA in Chicago.

Some of the main reasons for making the change include:

  • giving the organizers more time
  • they can gain some exposure and experience with the current year's group
  • easier to publicize and start spreading the word with everyone in the same room

How do you get started? Please review the bidding details at yapc.org. While there, you'll also find links to the venue requirements and the review criteria. Previous bids and announcements can be found with the 'yapc' tag at The Perl Foundation blog.

When making your proposal, in addition to venue information and possible dates, please make sure to include details on airport locations, local public transit (as well as transit to the venue from the airport!), local cultural attractions, and accommodation information. The more information you provide, within reason, the better. Also, please include contact information for the members of your team.

With a June 1st deadline, you have 10 weeks to get your bid completed and submitted to the Conferences Committee. It's a good idea to get your bid submitted early so that we can provide some feedback and allow you to make changes if needed.

Hosting YAPC is a rewarding experience and provides a great opportunity to give back to the Perl community. Good luck and we look forward to receiving your bid!

Send any questions and completed bids to the TPF conferences group: tpf-conferences (at) perl (dot) org

ACT now! For one easy payment of just $100 you'll get:
  • Three days packed with 36 hours of talks
  • Opportunities to meet various members of the Perl community
  • Chance to attend a variety of Birds of a Feather sessions (BOFs)
  • Conference T-shirt
  • Swag bag full of all sorts of goodies (including a particular Perl magazine)
  • A night of gaming fun and Glow Bowling at the UC Games Room (more information coming soon)
  • Dinner at the Tuesday night Banquet
  • Updates on major Perl projects
  • Keynotes by The Perl Foundation and Larry Wall himself


Plus, for $200 more dollars, we'll throw in two extra days of Perl! That's right, following the conference, Stonehenge is offering two 2-day training sessions at prices well under market value. brian d foy will be offering two days of Intermeidate Perl with Randal Schwartz covering Perl Best Practices and Persistent Perl Data. Visit the Master Class page on the YAPC website to find out more.

Don't have $200, but still want more Perl? Then stay for the Hackathon! Two days of hacking fun and helping out on various projects. There's a Hackathon wiki page on the site for signing up.

See you in Houston!"
