The Perl Foundation is excited to announce three hackathons that will be running sequentially with YAPC::NA 2015 in Salt Lake City this June. Each hackathon listed will run from 9:00 am until 6:00 pm. We will provide snacks and drinks, but you will be on your own for lunch.

The cost to attend these three hackathons is included in all YAPC::NA 2015 passes, but we do encourage you to RSVP online so we know how many to expect. Putting on these events is not cheap! Along with being able to attend each hackathon, we will also be providing rooms, wi-fi, and snacks throughout the day. So we would appreciate your help! To help cover these costs, we have a suggested donation of $50 per day, which you can make during your online registration.
