barbie writes " After many many requests, we can now reveal the official dates for YAPC::EU::Birmingham. The conference will be held from Wednesday 30th August to Friday 1st September 2006. In the UK this follows the bank holiday weekend, and is the calm before the storm when all the students return during September. "
"When signing up to host a YAPC::Europe we never expected, despite the words of warnings from previous organisers (see Cog's final speech in Braga), just how traumatic it could be.

It has been unfortunate that negotiations with venues didn't go as planned and have taken considerably longer than we had anticipated. However, we have found a venue, so we hope this crazy mule of a conference is finally coming under control, so please be prepared for a plethora of announcements and updates in the coming months. It's time to uncage the beast...

We are planning meetup events in a local pub in the evening for Tuesday 29th August and Saturday 2nd September, to extend the conference experience, for anyone arriving early and/or leaving later. Details of these will be announced nearer the time.

About Birmingham

Birmingham is the UK's second city, located in the heart of England. Technically speaking the village of Meriden is the centre of England, which is located 10 miles south of Birmingham city centre, but Birmingham has always been the commercial centre.

Birmingham grew from humble beginnings of a group of small villages, through the industrial focal point it became in the 1800s, to the commercial city it is today. As a result of this Birmingham has become a hub for road, rail and canal networks.

There is a rich history both in Birmingham and in the West Midlands, with towns and cities in the surrounding area providing many attractions to keep visitors entertained. Stratford-upon-Avon, Leamington Spa, Warwick and Ironbridge are all within easy reach of Birmingham, should you wish to extend your stay.


Should you wish to contact us, there is now an email address available for direct contact, where you can mail us with your questions and suggestions.

There is also the regular YAPC::Europe conference mailing list, open to all. See The YAPC::EU website conferences page. for more details. "
