The catchy website is here

If you point your browser to http://www.yapceurope.org/2010/ you will find out what our restless designers & web experts have been up to in the last few sleepless nights.

That's right, we have a nice layout, a shiny onion-themed logo, and content! Lots of content!

Please join us in expressing your gratitude to Micaela++, oha++ and viking-3++ for the good job. We hope you like the site as much as we do.

Call for Sponsors

The Call for Sponsors is out. If you're keen to support us, now you can. ;-)

Please have a look at the Call ( http://conferences.yapceurope.org/ye2010/call_for_sponsors.html ) for details on sponsorship tiers and on what expenses we need to cover.

Call for Training Courses

As has happened in past YAPC editions, we’re planning to have one or more days devoted to training courses run by Perl experts. Our goal is to offer the Perl community a wide selection of tutorials and high quality courses.

If you want/need to offset your travel expenses or raise some money or just have fun teaching Perl, you are welcome to apply to hold one of these trainings.

For more information, see the Call: http://conferences.yapceurope.org/ye2010/call_for_training_courses.html

Call for Papers

Call for Papers is now open, and will close on June 15th, 2010.

This year's theme for the YAPC::Europe is "The Renaissance of Perl", which has a variety of meanings in the Perl 5 and Perl 6 contexts. Talks related to this topic are welcome, as well as talks covering different areas.

Accepted talks (except lightning talks) will give you free entrance to the conference and free attendees dinner, so please do submit a proposal!

Bits and Bolts

A new Platinum sponsor joined us this week:

  • cPanel ( http://www.cpanel.net/ ). cPanel is the industry leader for turning standalone servers into a fully automated point-and-click hosting platform. Tedious tasks are replaced by web interfaces and API-based calls.

We also have two new Supporters:

Thank you all for your support!

...and the ticket price?

We had the ticket price written in a secret letter to be opened before sending this newsletter, but then... the letter went into the fire we lit to fight against this cold European winter.

Seriously, we need some more time to fix the price. ;-)
