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.

Walnut, CA - The Perl Foundation, along with the Salt Lake Perl Mongers is pleased to announce that the official venue for YAPC::NA 2015 will be the Little America Hotel, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Little America, a four-diamond hotel located on South Main Street has been working with this year's organizer team to meet all of the needs necessary to host a YAPC. The facility, which boasts 14 meeting rooms and 25,000 square feet, will provide a high tech and inviting environment for next year's conference.

The Perl Foundation has negotiated special room rates with Little America, which are available through March 1, 2015. These rates start at $129 per night, and reservations can be made directly with Little America.

The conference website is now live, and registrations are being accepted online at www.yapcna.org. The official Call for Talks is also open on the event website. The conference fee for 2015 has been set at $250. Discounts for students and military (active and retired) will be released in the upcoming weeks.

This year's conference theme, "Perl Elevated," will offer four different tracks, including a beginner-style track for those new to the Perl Community.

YAPC::NA::2015 in Salt Lake City, Utah

The Salt Lake Perl Mongers User Group (saltlake.pm.org) has been selected to host the YAPC::NA::2015. The conference will be held June 8-10th, 2015. The Salt Lake Perl Mongers and the local Provo Linux Users Group (plug.org) will combine to host this national event.

Salt Lake City (Utah's Silicon Slopes) is well known as a technology hub for both start-ups and large corporations. Companies such as Adobe, Intel, Bluehost, Overstock.com, Boeing, and ATK call Salt Lake City home. Another major non-tech consumer of perl in the area is the multi-petabyte database of the LDS Church.

The Perl Foundation is very excited to be taking our North American conference to Salt Lake City June 8-10th, 2015. We look forward to seeing all you there!
