A few days ago we began moving things together to form the conference schedule. It was ready a couple of days ago, and after talking to the speakers and making a number of changes, we are proud to present the schedule to a wider audience.

YAPC::Europe 2011 "Modern Perl" Schedule is publicly available: Monday 15th, Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th of August are full of Perl talks.
