Any dedicated group interested in hosting YAPC::Europe::2011 should send a brief statement of intent to venue@yapceurope.org. This should be followed by a complete application. The deadline for applications is June 30, 2010.

For details on how to prepare your complete application, consider the examples of previous conferences. If your proposal is selected, it will be added to the others on this page (you will have the opportunity to remove private information first). Be certain to include contact information (including telephone numbers) for at least two members of the group.

You may also direct any questions to the aforementioned email address.

A decision on the location will be publicly announced at the start of the Pisa conference.

News: YAPC Europe Foundation financial reports published

posted by rafael on 2010.01.06 6:00   Printer-friendly
BooK writes "The YAPC Europe Foundation's treasurer has put all the Foundation's financial reports (from 2004 to present) online. For those not interested in the gory details of "what has YEF been doing with the money it got from donations", there's also a global picture.

This information is made public because YEF gets its funding from the Perl community, which has a right to know what's done with its money, and also in the hope that it will make the YAPC Europe Foundation's purpose clearer to everyone."

nuba writes "We are proud to announce the YAPC::Brasil 2009, to be held from 30/October to 1/November in Niterói, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

We have humble goals this year: to put forth the greatest YAPC::Brasil ever, celebrate the Joy of Perl among ourselves, and tempt everyone else to join us in developing the programming language that has the happiest users!

We hope to deliver expertise in all levels, from introductory workshops {say "hello Perl!"} to perlguts, SMOP, Reaction and Metaprogramming to list a few and also a good number of slots for lightning talks to encourage newcomers!

Niterói holds one of the highest Human Development Indexes (HDI) of the country, and stays just a 15-minute ferry boat ride away from the famous, infamous and glamorous Rio de Janeiro. If you happen to be nearby, hop aboard and come join us!

Qiang writes "just a quick announcement that PerlChina is going to host a Beijing Perl Workshop on Nov 08, 2008.

It is jointly organized with the postgresql china that means there will be some postgresql talks as well. We have also secured few sponsorships to fly Jesse Vincent and two other postgresql hackers to the workshop. The conference website is not ready yet (having problem finding someone from ACT to move our test ACT site into production). If you are planning a trip to beijing in the early November, send a email to conference[at]perlchina.org to register the workshop, or even better come give a talk(20,40 minutes or lighting talk)!"

YAPC::TV

Journal written by andy.sh (8643) and posted by brian_d_foy on 2008.08.21 8:23   Printer-friendly

I have launched the yapc.tv website, which is intended to collect videos from Perl events we all organize.

I am not quite sure what will it be in a month of a year, but currently I am (very slowly) adding videos that were made at YAPC::Europe 2008 in Copenhagen, starting from lightning talks.

There are some ideas how to make video recodings more cool (all current ones suck in different aspects). I am going to implement one brilliant idea at Italian Perl Workshop in September if the organizers allow me do that :-)

Special thanks to Henrik Tougaard, who had presented me a tripod to replace one I forget at home.

By the way, perl.tv domain was already registered, but I find yapc.tv name very nice.

P. S. If anyone can offer of suggest hosting where I could freely put large FLV files, please let me know. The problem is that foreign traffic is free for me untill it is less than traffic which goes inside Russia. Google, YouTube, Vimeo etc. are quite good but there I will not be able to manipulate video transformations as I wish.

YAPC::NA 2008 Registration Open

Journal written by jmcada (5846) and posted by jmcada on 2008.04.16 21:28   Printer-friendly
With exactly two months remaining until YAPC::NA 2008, we are officially opening the payment system for registration to the conference. From now through the end of April, an early-bird price of $85 USD is available for attendees. After that, the registration cost goes up to $100 USD, so if you are looking to save some money on registration, book now! Of course, we are also making the full-price registration available for those who are feeling generous.

Some things to note:

If you are a speaker, DO NOT pay for the conference unless you really really want to. We will be passing out a coupon code sometime in the next few weeks so that you can properly register.

Also, if you are wanting to book on-campus accommodations you'll have to wait a week or so to reserve those; however, you can register and pay for the conference now to take advantage of early bird pricing. The housing registration system will be available very soon. The maintainers of ACT (the system we use to manage the conference) are working hard to create a more robust purchasing component of ACT that will make booking housing easier this year. A lot of this work will be done at next week's ACT hack-a-thon. Please join all of the ACT Hackers in making ACT an even better system for managing YAPC's around the world.

And finally, be sure to get the word out. We want to make this one of the best YAPC::NA's to date and to do that we need attendees! Tell your friends. Tell your boss. Tell your local PM group or LUG. YAPC::NA 2008 is almost here!

Call for Venue for YAPC::Europe 2009

Journal written by domm (4030) and posted by grinder on 2008.03.30 7:56   Printer-friendly
While we are all looking forward to YAPC::Europe 2008 in Copenhagen, it's time for the YAPC::Europe Venue Committee to consider suitable hosts for the 2009 conference. Any dedicated group interested in hosting YAPC::Europe::2009 should send a brief statement of intent to venue@yapceurope.org as soon as possible. For this first statement of intent a few lines like "City.pm is interested in hosting YAPC::Europe 2009" will be enough.

A full and complete application should then be sent to the same address prior to the deadline for applications, which is June 30, 2008. The YAPC::Europe Venue Committee will inform applicants by July 31, 2008 if their proposal was chosen. The public announcement of the location for the 2009 conference will be announced during the 2008 conference in Copenhagen.

For more information about the requirements for hosting a conference, you may want to refer to the YAPC organiser's documentation (administered by TPF) on Google code, or look at the examples of previous European conferences.

Please direct any questions to venue@yapceurope.org, and a member of the committee will endeavour to respond as soon as possible.

Looking forward to your submissions,
  Thomas Klausner

Journal written by jfluhmann (6902) and posted by cbrandtbuffalo on 2008.03.27 11:49   Printer-friendly
Welcome, once again, to the Yet Another Perl Conference, North America Call For Venue! The 2009 YAPC::NA marks the 10th anniversary for YAPC. Wow, 10 years of YAPC! This year we've decided to try something a little different. After some discussion and feedback, we've decided to take an approach similar to YAPC::EU. We're putting out the request for bids now, with a June 1 deadline. This gives the Conferences Committee time to review the bids and make a decision to be announced at this year's YAPC::NA in Chicago.
