Volunteers needed

20th Year Anniversary Planning Lead

We’re looking for volunteers who can help make the significance of the 20th Anniversary of Perl conferences stand-out! You don’t need to have event planning experience to help out, but it is a plus if you have attended past Perl conferences. The Planning Lead will get to see their vision become a reality at #TPCiP and they’ll get free admission to the event’s main conference days!

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 send an email to for more information about these opportunities.

A night on the river

#TPCiP organizers are excited to announce one of our after-hours social events! An evening on the “three rivers” in Pittsburgh! The Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio rivers frame the city and we’ll be taking an evening cruise where you’ll be able to relax and take-in all the stunning views. We hope to see you aboard!
