Register to attend The Perl Conference

There are many different ticket options this year. There is a golden ticket option which is more expensive than a regular admission ticket but comes with perks you can read about below. Early-bird and Regular priced tickets will soon be available and work as they have in the past but we are also adding an incentive to buy your tickets extra early! With our Special Anniversary Sale you’ll save a lot! Coming soon, for only 99 hours, you can get a ticket for just $99! Details below.

Special Anniversary Sale – Coming Soon!

Twenty years ago the first Perl Conference (Yet Another Perl Conference or “YAPC”) cost $99 to attend, so we will commemorate this by offering tickets at the rate of $99 each. This sale will last for only 99 hours. These special anniversary tickets go on sale starting December 25th, 2018 at 6:00PM EST and end 99 hours later on December 29th, 2018 at 9:00PM EST. Anniversary ticket holders will receive a great price on the event ticket and a special anniversary name badge ribbon!

Want to sponsor The Perl Conference?


Sorry! In the last publication we referenced Salt Lake City instead of Pittsburgh. Of course in 2019 we are bringing the event back to where it first began, Pittsburgh, PA. We hope you’ll help support our event by making a donation of any size!

A donation to The Perl Foundation not only contributes to the Perl Conference in Pittsburgh, but also aids our other outreach programs. Perl Foundation Sponsors will get recognition for supporting The Perl Conference as well as our regional Perl Workshops, our Outreach Program for Women, beginner training initiatives, and our grants programs for an entire year. Donating directly to The Perl Foundation is the way to get the most value for your sponsorship money.

For more information about donating to The Perl Foundation visit

Sponsors can also donate directly to The Perl Conference. Often the organizers are able to link a sponsor directly to an event at the conference ( wifi, coffee break, etc )  where the cost of the event is in line with the donation amount. Email for more information or to donate directly to this year’s event.

Sponsors of $500 or more will be provided a table at our sponsor expo and job fair.

I have more questions!

Send any questions about The Perl Conference to Somebody on our organizing team will be happy to get back to you.

We can’t wait to see you back where it all began, in Pittsburgh, PA this June! #TPCiP
