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

The Salt Lake Perl Mongers User Group ( 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 ( 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,, 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!
