The YAPC|10 organizers are working hard to make this a great YAPC. But we would really like it if the community could help out with pre-YAPC and post-YAPC events.

YAPCs make a great opportunity to be around great perl people. Make the most of it and create a few other interesting events.

  Comment: I don't see the problem either. (Score 1) on 2009.01.22 12:29

It is the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network.

And the CPAN FAQ says:

What is CPAN?

CPAN is the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network, a large collection of Perl software and documentation. You can begin exploring from either http://www.cpan.org/, http://www.perl.com/CPAN/ or any of the mirrors listed at http://www.cpan.org/SITES.html.

http://cpan.org/misc/cpan-faq.html#What_is_CPAN

So if a blog posting is documenting something maybe it should go on CPAN.

  Journal: Looking for free SQL Standard documention. on 2008.11.10 18:06

At PPW a hallway track discussion came up about having a test on CPAN that could test database conformance with the various SQL standards.

I am attempting to do some resarch on this and am not finding a good free reference for the SQL standards.

This is what I have found so far but it is not free.

YAPC is June 22-24 2009 back where it all started at CMU.

If you want to do anything pre or post YAPC please contact the organizers. We can help find you space for hack-a-thons or whaterver you might want to do.

Please join the mailing list to keep up to date with the YAPC details.

The call for papers deadline is September 12. If you are on the fence about giving a talk because you have never prepared a talk or given a talk don't fear we can help.

From talk selection, preparation and delivery we can help you along the way.

Come on be a voice in the perl community.

  Pittsburgh Perl Workshop 2008 on 2008.06.25 21:10 rblackwe

The Pittsburgh Perl Mongers are hard at work planning this years Pittsburgh Perl Workshop. (We are also planing YAPC::NA 09 but more on that later. But go ahead and mark your calendars for June 22 through Wednesday, June 24, 2009). Mark your calendars this years PPW will be October 11th and 12th 2008.

At this year YAPC::NA I was surprised at how much was going on before and after YAPC. So if you plan on coming to PPW and would like to have a hack-a-thon or something before or after the official PPW event and would like some help planing that let us know and we will do what we can.

PPW09 will have more training, more fun, and more talks than every before but if you think we might be missing something send us a note about it and maybe we can make it happen. We can not make everyone's wishes come true but we would like to try.

If you want to keep up with PPW announcements we have an announce mailing list http://groups.google.com/group/ppw-announce/.

Also you can keep an eye on http://pghpw.org/.

If you want to contact the PPW organizers you can email us at ppw-cabal at googlegroups.com.

If you are interested being a sponsor you can contact us at sponsors at http://pghpw.org/.

This year we are going to be offering a speaker mentor program. This is a chance to have someone work with you to polish your talk from idea to delivery. If you are interested in being a mentor or being mentored please let us know.

If you have already have a talk proposal you can send it to us now at ppw-proposals at googlegroups.com.
