The Perl Conference 2019

Thank you for Coming

In this issue:

Thank you!

The organizers of TPCiP want to thank all who attended, volunteered, presented, or sponsored us! Even if you are just following along on Twitter or subscribed to our YouTube channel – thanks for supporting Perl!

The Perl Conference is 100% volunteer powered and volunteers make it all possible! We needed every room moderator, camera operator, runner and setup/cleanup crew member that volunteered this year. Dan said it best in his farewell address, if you volunteered for 2 hours, or 16 hours, or just never stopped – thank you!

Until we meet again (in Houston)

TPCiP marked 20 years of Perl Conferences! If this was your first time, or you were a repeat attendee, thanks for coming! We are already planning another great Perl conference for next year. We are proud to announce The Perl Conference will be in Houston in June, 2020. We’ll use the #TPCiH tag in our announcements.

Catch talks you missed on our YouTube Channel

Watch presentations you missed during 2019 TPCiP on the YAPCNA YouTube channel, and subscribe so you don’t miss a thing!

These TPCiP Sponsors made it possible!

Without sponsors like the very generous and thoughtful companies detailed here, The Perl Conference, a non-profit and volunteer-organized event, would not be possible!

These top-level sponsors not only help support The Perl Foundation but also sponsored The Perl Conference in Pittsburgh (TPCiP)! Thank you all so very much for your support.


TPCiP is very grateful for the support of cPanel and their sponsorship of The Perl Conference in Pittsburgh and their continued support of Perl!

The cPanel & WHM software is an easy-to-use control panel that gives hosting providers, and website owners, a powerful modern interface for managing servers, websites, and applications. Developed in Perl since 1997, cPanel seeks highly motivated development team members in their Houston location. Visit for open positions.

Grant Street Group

TPCiP thanks Grant Street Group for their continued support of Perl and Perl conferences. Thank you for sponsoring The Perl Conference in Pittsburgh!

Grant Street Group has been a proud sponsor of various Perl Foundation events since 2003, including YAPC and TPC, the Pittsburgh Perl Workshop, the Perl QA Hackathon, and other regional Perl Foundation events in the United States and across the globe.

Grant Street Group has developed and administered websites used by government entities and financial institutions to conduct auctions and process high-volume, complex financial transactions. They have successfully hosted financial transactions exceeding $12 trillion for thousands of issuers throughout the nation since 1997. Today, Grant Street Group provides Software as a Service application for revenue collection, auctions, and e-payment processing.


TPCiP is very thankful to Bluehost for their sponsorship of The Perl Conference in Pittsburgh and their continued support of Perl and Perl conferences!

Bluehost was founded in 2003 with one goal: to make a better hosting company. Built from the ground up on open source technology like Perl, we’ve since grown to become one of the world’s largest providers of cloud-based online solutions. Operating beneath the Wasatch Mountains in Utah, over 700 of us are pushing boundaries to deliver the promise of the internet to more people than ever.

With Google Integration, 24/7 support, and a money back guarantee, it’s no wonder Bluehost is a top rated hosting provider.

… and a special thanks to our event sponsors!
