Volunteers needed

20th Year Anniversary Planning Lead

We're looking for volunteers who can help make the significance of the 20th Anniversary of Perl conferences stand-out! You don't need to have event planning experience to help out, but it is a plus if you have attended past Perl conferences. The Planning Lead will get to see their vision become a reality at #TPCiP and they'll get free admission to the event's main conference days!

YAPC "regulars"

Are you a chronic attendee of Perl conferences? Have you been to almost every YAPC and TPC in America as an organizer, speaker, or attendee? We would love to hear from you!

Please send an email to [email protected] for more information about these opportunities.

A night on the river

The Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio rivers frame the city and we'll be taking an evening cruise where you'll be able to relax and take-in all the stunning views. We hope to see you aboard!

We can't wait to see you back where it all began, in Pittsburgh, PA this June! #TPCiP

What did I get myself into?

Too Long need Limerick:

There once was a Trog in Houston
He saw a committee being reduced in
Now he's a chair
and full of despair
He needs people introduced in.

(It needs work but so does the committee)

If you didn't happen to make it to the TPC this year and see one of the cutest lightening talks this year, this may come as news to you. There is still a Community Advocacy Committee. For those who did see the talk. Check Twitter for updates on the continuing saga of homing so many puppies.

I've taken up the mantle and am working to help you the community in the projects you want to take up. I've got a few of my own I'd like some help with too. I'm looking for members.

My first goal is to help set up a monthly newsletter with ideas for having Perl Monger meetings. I'd like some help in getting it out, having some content, and other things that would make it easier to have a meeting when you have no idea what to do.

Your first goal is to introduce yourself to me if you want to be involved in either this project or have another one for the community that you think I could help with.

The Perl Conference, 2017 will be held this year in Washington DC, at the US Patent and Trademark Office, from June 18 through June 23rd. This is the conference that many of us have affectionately known as YAPC::NA::17.

If you haven't registered yet, please do so as soon as possible. We want to make sure we're providing the best possible experience for our participants, and to that end, accurate registration counts are helpful, plus there is still time to get the early-bird rate.

The conference website is: http://www.perlconference.us/tpc-2017-dc/

We have talks scheduled from many of the best speakers known to the Perl community; Damian Conway, Sawyer X, Randal Schwartz, Mark Jason Dominus, Ricardo Signes, and so many other strong speakers that I feel silly having mentioned the few that I did.

For those seeking additional enlightenment there are tutorials and master classes offered (by additional registration) on topics such as:

  • Perl in a Day (John Anderson)
  • Introduction to Moose (Dave Rolsky)
  • Perl Second Best Practices (Randal Schwartz)
  • Unicode and Associated Punishments (Ricardo Signes)

The conference is being held in the amazing US Patent and Trademark Office, and will feature an event in the National Inventors Hall of Fame Museum.

Early registration cost is $250, and late registration (Main event T-minus 14 days) will be $350, so there is still time to get your ticket, but you'll want to act sooner than later.

From the Perl Foundation Conferences Committee I would like to thank all of the organizers who have been working for many months on this, and who are currently neck deep in work tying up loose ends and caring for the many details. It will be a great conference because of everyone in the Perl community who attends and participates, but it couldn't be a great conference without those organizers who have devoted so much of their time and energy laying the foundation for the rest of us to build upon.

I am excited and can't wait to see everyone there.
