So, you want to run a Perl event?
Dan Wright will give a talk at YAPC::NA 2012 described as:
Perl events come in all shapes and sizes ranging from tiny hackathons to a full-fledged YAPC’s.
In this talk, I will cover various lessons learned from years of running Perl events. I’ll reveal some often hidden pitfalls and outline methods for success in running your event. I will also cover some of the resources that are available to help you run your event.
Audience: Perl experience isn’t really relevant to this talk. This talk is suited for anybody that has an interest, but little experience in event organizing.
Bio: As a founding organizer for The Pittsburgh Perl Workshop, I know first-hand what it is like to run an event for the first time. Since 2006, I’ve organized 5 PPW’s and a YAPC. Currently, I am planning for PPW 2012 and also serving as Treasurer for The Perl Foundation.
