This was a difficult decision for us. We know that many aren’t able to attend YAPC::NA but still want to see the talks. We love being able to help serve those members of our community as well as to promote our awesome language. We do not, however, want to do those things to the detriment of those who went to great expense to attend the conference in person. So, unlike recent years, we will not be live streaming all talks to our YouTube channel.
A selection of talks may be streamed live, but which talks those are will not be decided until much closer to the event. Many of the remaining talks will be made available at a later point after the conclusion of YAPC, and some talks will not be streamed at all. The best way to enjoy everything YAPC has to offer is really to be in Orlando, FL during the week of June 19th.
Quite possibly, but you’ll need to hurry!
The YAPC::NA::2016 Call for Speakers (http://www.yapcna.org/yn2016/news/1390) was released February 8th, with submissions being accepted until March 1st.
To submit a proposal for a talk/presentation, please register your proposed title and an abstract to the YAPC::NA site at http://www.yapcna.org/yn2016/newtalk. Submissions are due before midnight (23:59 EST) on March 1st 2016. Speakers will be notified by the 16th of March. If your proposal is accepted you will be expected to confirm within 48 hours of your notification that you, in fact, will give the talk. If you do not confirm in the given time frame we may, at our discretion, assign your slot to another proposal.
The Call for Master Classes (http://www.yapcna.org/yn2016/news/1391) was released February 10th, with submissions being accepted until all, limited, spaces are filled. We expect to announce some of those classes in the first week of March.
Are you an experienced Perl instructor who would like to offer a course at YAPC::NA this year in Orlando? We want to offer the Perl community a selection of courses and tutorials before and after the conference. Master Classes can be a half day (3 hours), full day (6 hours) or 2 days in length and will run on Sunday 19th, Thursday 23rd, or Friday 24th of June.
Thank you all for your continued patience with this process. We look forward to seeing you in Orlando!
