Do you plan to attend any Perl conferences or events this year?

Well, if you are, here are a few recommendations. First of all we have to go through the two major (yearly) Perl conferences, both formerly known as YAPC (EU and NA)

The Perl Conference Amsterdam

The EU Perl Conference is in Amsterdam this year and the theme is “High-end Perl”. It will take place from August 9-11th. The venue will be B.Amsterdam, the biggest startup ecosystem in Europe, with over 40.000 square meters of space. The call for presentations is open until June 15th so you still have time to submit your own. So far two keynote speakers have been announced, Larry Wall and Damian Conway.

The Perl Conference - US

The US Perl Conference will be held near Washington DC,  at the US Patent Office and Trademark Office, in Alexandria, VA. This is a 5 day event, from June 18-23th. The full schedule hasn’t been announced yet, but you can bet that you’ll have some exciting presentations there. You can  have a look at all the confirmed talks here. This conference is available to anyone, regardless of experience.

Going far, far away we can find another Perl event in Japan. YAPC::Fukuoka is a conference aimed at the Perl community in Japan, held on July 1st in Fukuoka. Guest speakers and talks haven’t been announced yet, but check out their website to stay up to date.

Other possibilities

Barcelona may have a Workshop in the fall, keeping in line with last year’s event and there also might be a Perl Dancer conference in Sydney.

If you know of any other Perl events going on in 2017 let us know so we can add them on the list.
