  • Sounds like a great idea. You can count on my wife and I flying up from Florida to attend.

    Even if you don't put a bid together for YAPC 2005, it wouldn't hurt to start compiling information. You never can be too prepared and if you could wrangle up enough folks to delegate tasks to, it actally can be quite fun.

  • We have done something similar twice in Denmark, we called it a workshop.

    http://perlworkshop.de/ [perlworkshop.de]

    http://www.perl.it/workshop/ [www.perl.it]

    http://vienna.pm.org/en_workshop.html/ [pm.org]

    There are plenty of workshops around...

    • There were 6 workshops this year: you forgot France [mongueurs.net] and Netherlands [perlpromo.nl]. Until now, Perl workshops have been a European thing. Rather small, but I would say that the important word is local. Which means that English is usually not the langage used in most of the talks. :-)

      • Oh, I did not mean to forget anyone in that sense or create and extensive liste, the URLs was only meant as inspiration and was based on what I could remember and a swift googling...

        Btw: the Perl Workshops in Denmark have been held in English :)
  • I vote for the Perl Skitrip in February. :-)

      - ask

    ps. I think a mini-YAPC would be great. Maybe with a bunch of 15-20 minute blizzard-talks?

  • I'd probably go if I could crash at someone's place (hint, hint ;)

    It's worth it just for a chance to eat at my food Mecca, Soul Vegetarian East (yummy fried vegan food heaven).
  • I will probably be showing up from Wisconsin since there aren't a lot of conferences that end up this way. If you all get this going, please post more information!

  • In '04 I believe some folks in Ottowa (?) did this. They had a 1.5 day workshop with day 1 as training type talks, and day 2 as lecture type. Depending on venue costs, and actual people who would attend, it may or may not be fiscally reasonable.

    But, since you'd have to check into venues and costs... may as well write them down for future use for a YAPC bid :-) In fact, just put one in for YAPC::2005. At the very least, you'll get a taste of the things needed to be checked into, and could be used for a YAPW
