Thanking the Perl Community by +Brent Laabs 
My first time at YAPC::NA was too incredible for words. That said, because this is a blog, I'm going to have to put it in words anyway. So, about a month ago, I didn't even know that I was even going to YAPC.  I was just talk...

The ultimate Yet Another Perl Conference in North America
Introduction

YAPC::NA is the annual North American grass-root Perl conference. Every year it is hosted in a different city. In 2013 it will be June 3-5 in Austin, Texas, USA.

See the YAPC::NA web site.

It is aimed at programmers, companies and freelancers, who use the Perl programming language. The conference provides attendees with a deeper understanding of Perl and its philosophy, and the opportunity to learn the latest features and techniques.

YAPCs (Yet Another Perl Conferences) have been held since 1999 and now include: YAPC::NA (North America), YAPC::Asia, YAPC::Brasil, YAPC::Russia and YAPC::Europe. Despite their obvious primary geographical structure, people from around the world attend each conference.

There are usually 300 to 400 attendees at YAPC::NA, with 60-80 speakers. The speakers include those who are responsible for the design, implementation, and maintenance of Perl itself.

Talks are held in parallel, with 3-4 talks for each time slot. Tutorials and classes are also held before, during and after the conference. They are held by well-known experts, and are dedicated to deeper and more specific Perl details and applications. The conference language is English. There is a good collection of talks from previous events on yapc.tv and on Presenting Perl.

One of the key principles behind YAPC conferences is the minimal price for the attendees.
