All Talks Welcome

I’ve apparently been too effective in asking for the talks we want for our primary two tracks, or not effective enough at explaining that we have 5 total tracks and that you can submit any kind of talk you want for YAPC::NA 2012. I say this because Sawyer X posted a comment indicating he didn’t think his talks would be welcome. I apologize that I gave that impression to anyone.

For the record, here are the tracks at YAPC::NA 2012:

  1. Perl in the Wild - Real world Perl applications.
  2. Perl 101 - The stuff everybody needs to know to be a good Perl programmer.
  3. Anything Goes #1 - Talk about your favorite module, framework, or what halve you.
  4. Anything Goes #2 - Same as Anything Goes #1.
  5. Mini Workshops - 1 or 2 hour long hands-on tutorials. 

We’re still looking for sessions to fill all of those areas, although we could definitely use some 1-hour long mini workshops.

Thanks for posting this, I really appreciate it.

I have been stressed for time this week so I just got around to it, but posted 4 talks: One on moving from Dancer to CGI (hands-on tutorial kind of thing), one on Moose (Perl 101 I guess, it's even called Moose 101, I hadn't noticed 'till now), one hopefully-funny lightning talk and another one showcasing some async frameworks. I guess that's also in the 101 thing, but it's relatively short.

I don't know how many, if any, of those will get accepted, but I already feel good and part of the conference that I was welcomed to submit the talks. Thank you for that. :)

P.S., ticket will be purchased tomorrow probably. Should have done that already...

Err.. was writing too fast: moving from CGI to Dancer. :)
