  • That's cool; I hope to be able to attend. Hopefully it's going to be late September rather than early September because I heard that Tokyo is still pretty hot in early September.

    Good luck with the JPA - is there an English web site somewhere? (I realize it's the Japan Perl Association, but connections to the outside world are important as well, I guess...

  • September is good timing. We (PerlChina) are planning to host another Perl Workshop this year again in Beijing. Maybe We can have it after Y::A and subsequently get more attendees/speakers.

    BTW, here is the world wide perl events and looks like September or October is mostly event free so far.

    • If they are organized around the same time, I will so try and make both. I've never visited Japan and would love to, and China was a great time and I'd love to visit again! :-)
    • That works out perfectly. Let's try to coordinate on the timing ;)
      • Just out of curiosity/planning, I looked at the cost of flights between Tokyo and Beijing. And...ouch. Then I realized that it's possible (and cheaper) to do boat to South Korea, followed by boat from there to China. Then some trains to fill in the gaps I guess (I spent a month taking trains around China in 2007...it was SO awesome). And it'd probably be cheaper to do that and I get to see a bit of South Korea along the way. (Or they could have a workshop too. ;-)) Anyway, looking forward to hearing dates e
        • FYI I've never traveled to/from China or Korea, so I don't know about the travel arrangements there, but if in case any of you plan to stay in Japan and travel a bit, you /definitely/ want to look at Japan Rail Pass (http://www.japanrailpass.net/). Travel costs are usually insane within Japan, but with this pass, you get a free ride on any JR operated transportation including bullet trains for a given amount of time.
  • It's the last big conference I've never been to, so I hope to get there if at all possible...
