  • No VIPs? *sniff* :)

    I certainly think that many, many events can put a drain on speakers. A super-star celebrity could go to a Perl event every month. The TPR Community Calendar is getting quite full! [google.com]

    I'd like to see more Perl speakers out there, instead of relying on the same stable of known names. By developing new speakers we're investing in the community.

    I know that Randal and I now only pick a couple of conferences to attend. Some of that is from time or scheduling limitations, and some is the financial aspects of paying for our travel and lost-paid-hours to be there. Since we're a small business, that sutff really matters. When it was an OSCON and a YAPC, it was okay. To travel to multiple conferences or to those overseas was starting to hurt us, even though we really liked participating.

    Fortunately, some kind soul is paying for my travel to the Nordic Perl Workshop. :)

    Otherwise, we're trying to set up low-cost trainings and other services around conferences to at least cover our hard expenses. IT worked pretty well for YAPC Chicago where Randal, Damian, and I taught low cost versions of our classes. I think we're doing that again at YAPC Houston, too.
    • hehehe, ok you can be VIP, but do not expect special treatment ;)

      We mentioned some of the speakers on our flyer [pm.org] for LinuxForum and somebody told me to put you topmost.

      Looking forward to seeing you in Copenhagen
