Dear YAPC::Europe attendees,
Here we are again. This year we've started the preparation so early that now there are not too many things that we have to worry about.
So far, we've got the contract with the venue and the boat rent agreement. We shaped the Partner Programme. We've settled the details of Larry Wall's attendance and are now working with the speakers to have better talks on the conference. Now we are negotiating some minor details with a few more sponsors, and are in the process of compiling the menu for daily coffee breaks and lunches, as well as the buffet for the River Cruise.
Last weekend Andrew attended the Polish Perl workshop in Warsaw for promoting the conference. The organisers managed to make a great event with lots of foreign attendees, and all the talks were given in English. One of the attendees won a free ticket to the YAPC::Europe 2013.
If you are going to attend the Perl 6 hackathon on 12 August in Kiev, be sure to prepare yourself and watch the latest Perl 6 video, a talk about moving Perl 6 to the Java virtual machine given by Jonathan Worthington in Warsaw last Saturday.
That's all for today. See you soon.comments powered by Disqus
