Yet Another Perl Conference :: Europe :: 2018

Perl Generations
The Studio
14th-17th August 2018

Welcome to Glasgow

The Studio, 14th-17 August 2018

Perl has been in the public domain for thirty years and 2018 is the thirty-first year, this marks a second generation. So what do we want to show from the first generation and first thirty years? What do the next thirty years of Perl look like? We invite you to think on this as you submit your talks but do not feel constrained by the theme.

The Perl Conference is an open and welcoming community event and as such we welcome submission on any subject. Do not feel imprisoned by a particular language. We welcome talks on other languages and technical matters relating to programming and software development, we also welcome community and infrastructure talks.

About The Perl Conference

The Perl Conference - which in the Perl community is usually referred to as Yet Another Perl Conference Europe (YAPC::EU) - is the annual meeting of Perl Mongers, developers, administrators, technical managers and interested parties in Europe. In 2018 the European Perl Conference will be held at The Studio in Glasgow between 13th-17th August.

YAPC started off as a series of grassroots user meetings, with discussions among Perl Mongers, and has grown from there. The very first OSCON grew out of the original Perl Conference. The focus is on enjoying the ideas of others, discovering new concepts, and feeling the enthusiasm of fellow programmers. Although our conference is devoted primarily to the Perl 5 and Perl 6 programming languages we appreciate and value discussions and submissions from other languages and technical disciplines.

19/03/18 StickerYou And YAPC::EU

Not all the sponsorship that we receive for a conference is in the form of a monetary donation. Often an organisation or individuals provide patronage, or support, in time, people or products.

One such organisation is StickerYou.

We have great pleasure in announcing that we have partnered with StickerYou to provide some custom stickers and Floor Decals for this year’s YAPC::EU in Glasgow.

About StickerYou

StickerYou Inc. provides the best platform in the world to create custom products that make you stick!

We are passionate about providing you with the highest quality custom stickers, labels, decals, iron-ons, temporary tattoos and more. Our website is built with proprietary die-cut technology to help you create and order your products exactly as you need them. This means you can order any quantity (as little as one), in any size and shape you need.

StickerYou was founded in 2008 by Andrew Witkin, who was inspired during a walk on Los Angeles’ Manhattan Beach when he noticed how stickers played a huge role in the local scene and culture but realized how expensive it was for individuals to create awesome die-cut stickers themselves.

StickerYou is based in beautiful Toronto, Canada.
