Dec 23, 2014 YAPC::NA::2015 Call for speakers

The YAPC::NA call for speakers is now open! The Yet Another Perl Conference is a high-quality, inexpensive technical conference that celebrates the Perl programming language. The conference is 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, including luminaries such as Larry Wall, Ricardo Signes, and Damian Conway. We invite you to be part of the event.

YAPC::NA will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, on June 8-10th 2015.

This year we will be running 4 tracks plus a beginner track. We are interested in hearing talks on a variety of subjects but would particularly like to receive talks on the following topics:
