Perl Tashkent, no less, no more

I am happy to inform that Alex has just launched the website for the First Uzbek Perl Workshop in Tashkent.

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.

YAPC::Russia 2009 “May Perl — 2”

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 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.

YAPC::TV podcasts

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.

There are also two podcast feeds: and Slovak casts are on the queue :-)

Thanks to leader, Anatoly Sharifulin for forcing me and helping with media file convertions.

Planning a trip to Lisbon and back

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). 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 Click "Advanced Search" first, Moscow appears there.
