Perl is extremely good.
Perl in a city like Granada can be even better.
Let us tell you that this city has a wonderful tradition: everytime you ask for a beer (or any other drink) in a bar, you will get a tapa (a small amount of food) for free.
Could be enhanced?
Yes, it is; since Granada is the place where delicious craft beers are made.
For instance, did you know you can drink the Alhambra? (do not forget to ask for the "1925" version)
A bit wilder, perhaps? Then, ask for a Mammooth... you'll want to bring it home with you ;)
Come and discover many more while staying here!
YAPC::EU is not just for the core Perl developers but for the community of developers of all backgrounds with an interest in Perl. For this reason we've added a 1-day beginner's class Perl Essentials to make sure everyone gets the most from the conference presentations. In addition, attending this class you will get a 6 month enrolment at Geekuni to keep up the momentum, and a taster enrolment for colleagues you'd like to up-skill on Perl.
The Alhambra citadel and palace is probably the most important architecture in Spain. It is located in Granada. In order to visit it one needs to purchase a ticket up-front for a specific hour of a specific day.
Ticket sales for September have just been opened.

YAPC::EU is an annual tech conference that takes places in Europe. Every year in a different city. This year it is in Granda, Spain between 2-4 September.
While the focus of the conference was traditionally the use of the Perl programming language, every year we had a number of talks covering other technologies as well. This year we would like to make this more explicit and we would like to extend the invitation to submit talk proposals about solutions in other, complementary technologies as well. We would like to make this YAPC an event that any engineer will be able to enjoy.
A number of ideas, just to give you an idea how broad the talks can be: Front-end Frameworks, Databases ( SQL, NoSQL ), DevOps, Virtualization, Deployment containers, Makers movement, OpenID, SPDY etc.)
The topic of the conference is "art and engineering" so you'll have to mention both of those words during the talk along with Perl. That's your challenge.
Get yout ticket now... or at least before 22-Jun-2015... and pay the reduced fare.
A new master class was added to the schedule, a one-day course on Database Development with Perl and DBIx::Class by Dave Cross. It has an early-bird discount rate till 1 June.
Finally there is the Practical Career Development for Perl Programmers course also with more spaces available.
You can purchase your ticket on the purchase page.
YAPC::EU currently has 2 master classes.
The other one is a half-day course by Peter Sergeant in the afternoon of 1/9 about Career Development for Perl Programmers. Attending it will help you write a better CV and prepare you for an interview.
For more details and registration check out the YAPC::EU courses> page.
There is space for more 1/2 and 1-day courses on 1/9. If you are interested offering such a course, check out the call for instructors and submit your proposal ASAP.
The main body of the conference also has more space for additional talks. Submit now to make it easier for the attendees to see how awesome this event is going to be.
It is possible to use some of the rooms on 1/9 and there might be options to have space on 5-6/9 to run Hackathons. If you are interested, please get in touch with the organizers so they can assess the requirements.
