Welcome to our fourth official bulletin from the organisers of the 2006 YAPC::Europe Perl Conference in Birmingham.
We have a venue!
Following an exceedingly long venue review process, which we all hope we never have to go through again ... ever, we finally settled on a city centre venue, which is more than happy to accommodate us for the week.
The chosen venue is The CSBO Centre, which is just off Broad Street, on the main south western corridor out of the Birmingham City Centre. The city centre itself is a short 5 minute walk, and New Street station is only a 10-15 minutes walk away.
The venue was built to house the offices and rehearsal space for the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, but is also the perfect concert venue for many intimate performances from recitals to jazz concerts. The building houses meeting rooms and studios, which have been put at our disposal for the duration of the conference, so we plan to make good use of them. Although, fear not you'll not have sit through any attempts by members of Birmingham.pm to play a musical instrument ... or sing! Although we hear there are interesting plans afoot for something musical (or at least approaching it) from another Perl Monger group.
Call for Sponsors
Every YAPC::Europe conference has happened thanks to contributions for sponsors, and this year is no different. A couple of sponsors have stepped forward already, for which we are exceptionally grateful for, but we still need more to help us out with the finances. We are still looking for room sponsorship among many other items, so if you or your company is interested in raising your profile and contributing to a great Open Source conference opportunity, then please get in touch. A sponsor prospectus and an application form are available on request.
For the full press release, please see the official site.
We are one of the UK's largest Perl user groups, representing Birmingham UK to the international Perl community since 2000. We hold monthly social and technical presentations, and several of our members are now regular attendees and speakers at the YAPC::Europe Perl Conferences.
