    This call for proposals is delayed because I managed to set up my calendar notification incorrectly. My apologies if this has inconvenienced anyone.

  • Moving toward a conferences toolkit (ACT) Fri, 06-Oct-2006 by Jim Brandt

    Long-time readers might remember my plea for a conference module to allow YAPC organizers to organize rather than hack the website. Well, I'm very pleased to announce that I was able to get in touch with the YAPC Europe folks and the ACT folks and they have agreed to work on making ACT the default YAPC web site framework.

  • Thanks Nick Wed, 27-Sep-2006 by Graham Barr

    This week the Perl community lost one of its long time contributors, Nick Ing-Simmons, who died of a heart attack on Monday September 25th 2006.

Nick is probably best known for his work on
