Reply to our CFP acceptance message

Did you submit a talk idea? We have already emailed you the status of your submission. Organizers need you to reply to that email asap (within 48 hours) to confirm you are still able to give the talk! Once we have your confirmations we can get our schedule underway.

By the way, TPCiP is accepting your proposals until April 1, 2019 in our second call for proposals round!

Attend the TPCiP planning meeting

Ever wonder how The Perl Conference events are organized? TPCiP organizers are meeting on March 25 to continue working out the event details. We had good feedback at our last open meeting and are doing it again. Feel free to join us! You can simply observe or, even better, help us in our planning – just for the day or on a continued basis.

Join our meeting (id is 305 037 240) at 8:00pm EST on Mar 25.

Calling all YAPC “regulars”!

Are you a chronic attendee of Perl conferences? Have you been to almost every YAPC and TPC in America as an organizer, speaker, or attendee? We would love to hear from you! Please reach out to the conference organizers,

Volunteers needed

We’re looking for volunteers who can help make the significance of the 20th Anniversary of Perl conferences stand-out! The selected volunteer may lead a small group of other volunteers or work individually, arrange for creation and placement of announcements/displays, lead the discussion on special activities that could be incorporated into the event, etc. The selected volunteer will help us highlight our 20th year and will also get free admission to the event’s main conference days! Please send an email to for more information about volunteering.
