YE2006 - The Dates
Posted by on 28/03/2006

Hello, and welcome to our long anticipated second official bulletin regarding the 2006 YAPC::Europe Perl Conference from the Birmingham 2006 Organisers.

When signing up to host a YAPC::Europe we never expected, despite the words of warnings from previous organisers (see Cog's final speech in Braga), just how traumatic it could be.

It has been unfortunate that negotiations with venues didn't go as planned and have taken considerably longer than we had anticipated. However, we have found a venue, so we hope this crazy mule of a conference is finally coming under control, so please be prepared for a plethora of announcements and updates in the coming months. It's time to uncage the beast...

The Dates

After many many requests, we can now reveal the official dates for the conference. The conference will be held from Wednesday 30th August to Friday 1st September 2006. In the UK this follows the bank holiday weekend, and is the calm before the storm when all the students return during September.

We are planning meetup events in a local pub in the evening for Tuesday 29th August and Saturday 2nd September, to extend the conference experience, for anyone arriving early and/or leaving later. Details of these will be announced nearer the time.
