About YAPC (Yet Another Perl Conference)
A couple times a year all over the world (Russia, France, Germany, Vienna and Ohio), Perl Developers come together for a conference called YAPC.

On the YAPC website, the organizers say:

The Yet Another Perl Conference is a high-quality, inexpensive technical conference with its roots in the Perl Mongers user groups. The conference celebrates the Perl programming language and is meant to be accessible to anyone, regardless of experience, yet valuable to even the most skilled of programmers. Each year the conference attracts hundreds of programmers from around the world.

This year, Yet Another Perl Conference: North America will be held at Ohio State University June 21st through the 23rd.

Its Facebook page says:

YAPC::NA::2010 is going to be about “Modern Perl 5”. We believe that Perl 5 is a vibrant and living language with many uncharted places it can go […]

Right now, we’re planning for 12 tracks, 4 per day. If we get enough talk submissions and registrations (particularly daypasses), we have the option to expand into a fifth daily track (for a total of 15 tracks).
