YAPC Europe Foundation - Conferences

'YAPC' stands for 'Yet Another Perl Conference'. The YAPC conferences are annual events, organised by geographic region. In Europe, a different host city is selected each year by the Venue Committee. The organizing team often assigns a theme to the conference. The theme loosely groups presentations and sponsors, but doesn't limit the content. Of course, the real unifying theme of all the conferences is Perl. For more information about organizing a conference, please refer to the organizers' page.

By contrast, several workshops are offered each year, and particular workshops often return to the same location each year. Additionally, YEF has no hand in determining the location of workshops. While conferences appeal most to the intermediate to expert level, many offer a beginner's track or tutorials. Most conferences are conducted in English, while workshops tend to be local language based (usually plus English). Sometimes a conference may also include a hackathon.
