YAPC::NA 2014 • Orlando, FL

All dates and times in here are tentative. They may change without notice, so please be aware of that. The BoF rooms (Pinellas and Volusia) are open for further gatherings. Please get in touch with Ya'akov Sloman (‎Yaakov‎) or a member of staff to coordinate their use.

Dancer BOF

I have not a precise agenda in mind, but since Sawyer X and myself (Yanick) will be around, it'd be a shame not to reserver some time for Dancer stuff. I was thinking of perhaps a open questions/discussion type of BOF. Current state of the dance floor, future plans, suggestions and wild ideas for Dancer itself and its surrounding ecosystem of plugins and tools, things like that?

Location: Pinellas (3rd Floor)
Time: 11:00am, Tuesday, June 24

* Yanick Champoux (‎Yanick‎)
* Sawyer X (‎Sawyer X‎)
* Samuel Smith (‎esaym‎)
* Adam Dutko (‎StylusEater‎)
* vroom
* R Geoffrey Avery (‎rGeoffrey‎)
* (your name here)

Math/Science BoF

There's a panel on day 3, but perhaps people would like a bit of time to discuss what they're doing in the sciences with Perl. Not all of us spend our Perl time writing web frameworks and IRC bots, and we haven't all moved to Python, Haskell, Julia, etc. (yet). It would be nice to meet some others doing the same.c

irc.perl.org Governance BOF

The irc.perl.org governance proposal ( https://gist.github.com/sungo/10679594 ) states that the initial community opers must hold an initial face-to-face meeting at YAPC. This meeting will be open to all and will focus on the creation of an initial charter and the policies around selecting additional community opers.

Perl Jobs BOF

I have run this BOF the last two yapc's. Attendance went from about 10 in Madison to over 20 in Austin. We will cover resume and interview tips, whether agents are good or evil, job hunting stories and more. Add your name below if you are interested in attending.

Scalability BoF

Scaling is hard. Do you have some horror stories you'd like to share? Or do you have some pain points you'd like to get suggestions for how to fix? Are there certain modules on CPAN that were lifesavers? Hopefully there are some success stories people can share and lessons they've learned.
