This is an incredible event! We have already organized a number of Perl events in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Bulgaria. Four countries, too few? OK, here we are with Perl workshop in Uzbekistan. It is hosted together with BestSoft IT-forum, and is due to happen on 13th of May, just a couple of days before YAPC::Russia in Moscow. Alex has done all the preparations himself, thus respect and honour to him.
So, a quick trip to Oslo, and than much fun in the ExUSSR territory.
The website and the registration for second YAPC::Russia are onen now.
This year we’d like to make some changes in the general layout of the conference and would try to add master classes or tutorials for people who’d like to teach Perl.
From previous year we bring YAPC::Russia::Golf content; Jerom is already preparing tasks for them. Of course, there will be lightning talks, coffee-breaks, preconference Friday meeting and attendees dinner.
Attendance is free of charge.
The conference is organized by DeepText and Moscow.pm. This is our 9th event. People who are responsible for that have already organized Perl events in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Bulgaria. The distance between the most easten and the most western cities of our events is 9000 km.
We have launched online broadcasting from our Ukrainian Perl Workshop: http://urh.ru:8010/perl.m3u.
There are talks both in Russian and English, the schedule is published on the website: http://event.perlukraine.org/upw2009/schedule.
Perl Today 2007
Perl Mova 2008
May Perl 2008
Far East Perl 2008
BY Perl 2008
BG Perl 2009
Perl Mova 2009
All these are events I've organized or initiated.
Count them: there are seven. And 7th version of Perl should be final version of the language. Should Perl Mova be the last Perl event I organize?
Rent the venue, launch the website, find speakers, discuss details with colleagues, promote the event.
And forget to put the link "Registration" to the website.
YAPC::TV allows now not only watching video, but also just listening to the sound
Every talk is accompanied by audio player and mp3 download link.
Thanks to Rostov-on-Don.pm leader, Anatoly Sharifulin for forcing me and helping with media file convertions.
This morning we start our first hackmeet. Hope it will result in some useful code in the evening
A couple of photos:
This Saturday (Jan 17) Moscow.pm is planning to make our first hackmeet. Yes, that was inspired by Vienna.pm's one
People are going to hack on a project based on Catalyst.
There will be online discussions for those who'd like to join us remotely: #moscow.pm IRC channel at rusnet.org.ru and #moscow.hm (hack meet) on irc.perl.org.
Aeroflot does not fly to Lisbon. That is sad because I cannot use my frequent-flyer bonuses.
A discount offered by TAP for this conference is not available for travelling from Moscow. There are no direct flight from to Lisbon. TAP search suggests to have a change in Munich, thus only half of fly segments are handled by TAP, another half by Lufthansa.
Flight Moscow—Munich—Lisbon—Munich—Moscow costs 417 EUR (January price).
Travel.ru informs that that itinerary is incorrect, and TAP is going to fly directly from Moscow since 10th of June.
Tip: there are no Moscow in the list on front page at http://www.flytap.com/. Click "Advanced Search" first, Moscow appears there.
