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.

Lightning talks in Omaha

Robert Fulkerson sends notice of a set of a Perl lightning talks in Omaha, NE, on December 5th at 6pm.

"Everyone's invited to come visit the UNO CSCI 2850 (Perl) class's semester-ending lightning talks. This semester's talks are in room 256 at the Peter Kiewit Institute at 67th & Pacific. They'll start at 6 PM and last until 7:30. Unfortunately, we don't have any funding so there won't be any drinks or food, but you can certainly pick up an expensive pop ($1.25) in one of the machines on the first floor if you'd like. :)"
