YAPC::NA 2015 to be hosted at Little America

No Comments

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.

For more information, and to register for YAPC::NA, please visit www.yapcna.org. Conference updates, including schedules, add-on classes, and speakers, will be pushed regularly via the conference blog at blog.yapcna.org.

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!

New TPF Conferences Chair

1 Comment

I'm happy to announce that Heath Bair is our new Conferences Committee Chair. Heath was the organizer for YAPC::NA in Columbus in 2010 and he has remained passionate about YAPCs ever since. I'm looking forward to him bringing that passion to one of the most active committees in TPF. Please join me in congratulating Heath on his new role!

Josh McAdams is stepping down as conferences chair, so TPF is now accepting self-nominations for this role. This is a great opportunity to help the Perl community and is one of the key roles that can have a huge impact without writing code. You can take a look at the expectations for the role on the conference roles page. If you're interested, answer the questions at the bottom of the page and send it to me at cbrandt at perlfoundation dot org.

TPF committees typically select their chairs, so I'll forward all submissions on to the conferences committee for discussion and selection. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, August 15, so get started!

Thanks to Josh for all of his work!

YAPC::NA 2013 Will be in Austin

I'm happy to announce that YAPC::NA in 2013 will be in Austin. We had two great locations to choose from, especially from the perspective of other interesting things to do outside the conference. Details and dates will be coming shortly. Congratulations to the Austin group!
