  • I'm not a very big fan of travel grants or the Send-a-Newbie [send-a-newbie.com] project. Therefore I didn't reply to your mail (from May, 5th), which was not very friendly or professional. Sorry.

    Anyway, we (Vienna.pm) discussed the whole send-a-newbie project and in the end decided to not support it (by donating money). But we have put some money aside for a "local" send-a-newbie-ish project, but I'm not really involved in the organisation of it. Even though I doubt that the person you suggested will be eligible, you (or he/she) can submit a "proposal" as soon as Jozef and Lars decided on the procedure.

    • we cammed up with:
      • This should be your first YAPC conference, besides YAPC::EU::2007
      • YAPC::EU::2009 is your nearest YAPC.
      • You need financial help to attend (someone from the Vienna.pm||Bratislava.pm stand bail for you)
      • Will present "what I've seen on YAPC::EU::2009" on next pm meeting
      • You should be able to speak English (to understand the talks).
    • Thank you josef but i don't understand what you mean fully. domm: i think you misunderstood me. i also not largest fan of send a newbee, but in this case he isnt a newbee but lead developer of an important perl 6 project (which rakudo already took advantage of) that not gets enough attention, which could be fixed if we help him to fly fom south america to YAPC.
