YAPC::NA 2008

June 16-18, Chicago, IL

Illinois Institute of Technology

Thanks to Tom Yarrish, we have a detailed ICS file of the conference schedule.

McCormick Student Village (MSV) is the dorm complex where many people are staying and where some get-togethers like the ParrotHackathon might happen. The main conference sessions are in Hermann Hall (Hermann Union Building).

Master Class Locations

Catalyst - Engineering 1 room E1-124

Intermediate Perl - same room E1-034

Test Automation - Wishnick Hall Room WH-116

System Administration - Siegel Hall room 202 (north end of 2nd floor)


It would be hard to add a talk now as they are over.


Saturday and Sunday before, June 14-15 (ParrotHackathon)
Thursday and Friday after, June 19-20 (Hackathon)

BOF schedule

BOF stands for "Birds Of a Feather". These are smaller, less formal, self-organized meetings, some technical, some food/fun related. Set them up on the BOF schedule.


If you are blogging the conference, posting pictures, etc., post your link on the YAPCBuzz page. There are links from previous YAPCs there too.

Places to Stay

  • On-campus housing
    • MSV is the only on-campus option. See the accommodations page for info or go directly to the purchase page (which doesn't work, WTF? Adam K)
    • SSV (prison dorm, which WILL NOT be an option this year because it is being remodeled)
  • Off-campus
    • Club Quarters is one option. Use the code 'Illinois Institute of Technology' to get access to rates and booking information. This applies to both locations; Central Loop (111 West Adams Street) and Wacker at Michigan (75 E Wacker Dr)
  • Room Sharing - Want to split a room? Chicago local with an extra couch? Talk about it here.
