Just a reminder about the Yet Another Perl Conference, North America Call For Venue...
Entries can be submitted now through June 1st 2010 to the TPF conferences group: tpf-conferences (at) perl (dot) org. We hope to announce the winners at "this year's YAPC::NA in Columbus, Ohio":http://conferences.mongueurs.net/yn2010/.
Are you ready to get started? First off, you will want to "review the bidding details at yapc.org":http://yapc.org/yapcna.html. While there, you'll also find links to the "venue requirements":http://tpf.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/yapc/Bidding.pm and the "review criteria":http://yapc.org/yapc-crit.txt that the committee uses to judge bids. Previous bids and announcements can be found with the "yapc":http://news.perlfoundation.org/mt/mt-search.cgi?tag=yapc tag at "The Perl Foundation blog":http://news.perlfoundation.org/.
When making your proposal, in addition to venue information and possible dates, please make sure to include details on airport locations, local public transit (as well as transit to the venue from the airport!), local cultural attractions, and accommodation information. The more information you provide, within reason, the better. Also, please include contact information for the members of your team.
With a June 1st deadline, you hopefully will have time to get your bid completed and submitted to the Conferences Committee early so that we can provide some feedback and allow you to make changes if needed.
Hosting YAPC is a rewarding experience and provides a great opportunity to give back to the Perl community. Good luck and we look forward to receiving your bid!
