YAPC::Europe Foundation is pleased to announce that Kiev, Ukraine has been chosen as the site for the YAPC::Europe 2013.

We are confident that Kiev.pm and Moscow.pm’s experienced team — which was responsible for many Perl events in Eastern Europe — will put together a wonderful conference. The theme for the next YAPC::Europe will be ‘Future Perl’.

We hope to see you in Kiev next summer!

The 2012 Perl White Camel awards were announced at YAPC::NA this week, congratulations to the well deserved recipients…

Perl Community: Renee Bäcker

Renee Bäcker is at the heart of the German Perl community. He publishes $foo Magazine, a sponsor of this conference, is a leader in the German Perl monger community, and is organizing this year’s YAPC::EU in Frankfurt (although he was already short-listed for this award before we knew that).

Perl User Groups: Jim Keenan

Jim Keenan has been a quiet but effective Perl influence. For years he led Perl Seminar New York, a technical complement to NY.pm‘s social focus. He volunteers to help at many hackathons, gently advises new events, and was instrumental in bringing together separate Perl groups
within New York City.

Perl Conferences: Breno G. de Oliveira

Breno G. de Oliveira, or just “garu”, is a social connector in the Brasilian Perl community as well as the PerlSDL community. Active in Rio.pm, he was also the organizer of YAPC::Brasil 2011 in Rio de Janeiro. He has contributed to the PerlSDL book. With a little help, he wants to unite the global Perl community by visiting every YAPC he can and helping other people to travel to Brasil to meet Perl programmers they might not otherwise interact with.

For those of you who aren’t able to attend YAPC::NA in person, this year’s organizers set up live streams of the conference. You can use the conference schedule to find which talks you want to see and then stream the room you are interested in. The rooms are:

You’ll need Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash, or Apple Quicktime to be able to view these streams.

The streams will go live at 9am US Central time on June 13th.
