YAPC::EU Day One

YAPC Europe is finally here and we’re so excited to be able to attend such an awesome and large event.

Day one started perfectly with an amazing announcement. Drum rolls please...next year's edition of YAPC::EU will be in Amsterdam! We’re already excited about it.


But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, YAPC Cluj is just getting started. The venue looks amazing:


Representing Perl, of course




The Instagram frame and the photobooth are so awesome, you can have lots of fun during the talks, because let’s face it, YAPCs are always fun.


There are several boots, Perl 6 is here, Perl Careers, Eligo, Evozon, Capside. They have lots of cool stuff, but we’re especially impressed with the Perl 6 booth.


The schedule is packed, there are so many talks and presentation that it’s really hard to choose between them. Here is the complete lists of talks for day one:

Juan Julián Merelo-Guervós (‎jmerelo‎) -‎Quantifying creativity: using Perl to analyze the process of writing‎

R Geoffrey Avery (‎rGeoffrey‎) -‎Lightning Talks Day 1‎ 

As you can see there are so many different speakers, as far as we know there are participants from 36 countries so you have a wide array of views from perl people from all over the world. 

We loved two parallel presentations from DrForr and Sawyer, exciting to hear and see them both (although it was a bit of a challenge being in two rooms at the same time) at YAPC::EU. 



Day One was a blast, the presentations, the people (the food) and it will end with an awesome party at the Museum of Art. Day Two incoming!
