Time definitely flies. We're almost the half way towards our journey's destination -- YAPC::Europe 2013 in Kiev. Here is a quick wrap-up of the current progress and the future plans.
Venue and dates
In December we've signed up a venue contract and settled the dates: 12-14 August of 2013.
We've set up and opened the website http://yapc.eu/2013. We try to keep it nice looking and updated.
Slowly but surely we are starting the campaign of announcing the conference through various websites and media interested in open source and programming in general, without limiting us only to the Perl resources. If you want to help promoting the conference, let us know!
We're contacting several Perl hackers and negotiating their visits to Kiev.
We've found the big enough ship for the attendees and working towards signing the contract with the cruise company. This is going to be fun!
Yes, we are doing this. This means you don't have to leave your partner at home, bring them to Kiev too!
We've contacted over 40 companies and individuals who could be interested in sponsoring a Perl event. So far we've received a little bit more than 20 answers, 9 of them were positive. If you or your company got an email from us, please, tell us something! No is still a good answer :)
A big THANK YOU to everyone who is helping us making this conference possible. If you want to support Perl and its community, please join the club!
We have over 90 registered members and 5 sponsors so far. Thank you all!
