Upon hearing the community's voice, we have re-worked our YAPC timeline, and found a way to extend the call for papers deadline to March 1st. We want to thank those individuals who have already submitted their talk proposals, they will be considered in the first round of rotating acceptances. And we'd also like to thank those in the Perl community who spoke up. This is your YAPC, and we want to do everything we can to respond to the needs of the Perl community.
You can find all the details on the YAPC::NA website: http://www.yapcna.org/yn2015/news/1289
