    A few reasons why I'm a MetaCPAN promoter:

  • still has the look of 1997 web sites. Just this can let people think that Perl is stuck there.
  • you can submit issues about MetaCPAN, they are public, and you get feedback. For s.c.o, you have to send an e-mail and I never got an answer. Anyway, I have abandonned a long time ago the usage of my e-mail inbox to track issue progress.
  • issues reported are quickly fixed
  • you can even directly report issues on IRC (#metacpan) and get immediate feedback and fixes
  • you can submit patches for Meta…

    Same for The Netherlands, which is divided in 3 regions. Summer holiday is 6 weeks, and each region starts a week after the other, and the last region's summer holiday ends on august 30. Several Dutch Perl Mongers will not be able to make it to Granada next year (at least, not with their family, and since the first week in school is taxing for parents, the other parent will not be happy when the Perl Monger is having fun in Granada).

    Yet another reason to target younger people :-)

    BTW, I don't have a problem with the current dates, but I would have some if the conference was a week earlier, because of my sons birthday. No matter which dates you'll pick, some people will find them inconvenient

    interestingly, at Swiss Perl Workshop, we choose dates that are *not* during the (local) holidays. Because some people might not be able to attend because they are away on (family) holidays..

    In my case, I can seldom attend YAPC::Europe because of it happening during my kids holidays (that BTW, in Spain last until mid September!)
