Not long ago, 2013 in Kiev, my first Perl Conference -- sponsored through the Send-A-Newbie program -- I decided to help with the Dutch Perl Workshop. It was only a little later, that organising a Conference would be the next insane thing to do
I feel so privileged to be amongst great and inspirational people that have a same passion as I have...
Make The Perl Conference in Amsterdam ... GREAT!!!
I use and love Perl since 1994.
I helped organising many Amsterdam Perl Mongers meetings, all Netherlands Perl Workshops, and YAPC::Europe in 2001 in Amsterdam.
The Perl Conference in Amsterdam in 2017 will see me help with registration & front desk, finding/supporting speakers, and setting up a beautiful booth with Perl-stuff. Above all, I will help you have a good time in Amsterdam...
I'm happy to help with whatever (technical) problem the team forks of to me, as long as I do not have to do the planning.
I'll try to make a personal agenda for each of the visitors, ready to integrate with your Android or iPhone calendar.
I'll be helping setting up the schedule.
Happy to assist the team on planning, administration, booking and all other kind of activities you can expect from an assistant. Because that will be my role.
I am not in to any code at all (I know how to deal with Merijn - and that is the only tech language I know)
Working as assistant for Hewlett Packard Enterprise for many years and living close to Amsterdam.
I have joined many YAPC's as a spouse and now I am happy to be your help for all questions related to travel, tourism in the Netherlands, weather forecast and what else.
Although I don’t share my fathers expertise in programming and Perl, I do share his passion and I am very passionate about social media and spreading news.
I like to stay up to date with (almost) everything that goes on in the physical world by monitoring the digital one. That is why I will co-ordinate social media and promotion concerning the Perl Conference in Amsterdam in 2017.
One of the many things I do, is updating the website content. There, is sooo much that the organising team likes to share with you, and I love to publish it here.
Another project I am involved in is SHA2017 and enjoy bringing in my personal experiences.
Sure, if you find something you think we should add, just give me a shout.
