Two weeks till YAPC::Asia Tokyo!
We only have two more weeks until YAPC::Asia Tokyo 2011!
I have secured what's called an "event insurance" which will cover any injuries or damages to the facility during the conference, so we're pretty much all set now. Just counting the days now...
And while we're at it, I'm happy to announce that YAPC::Asia Tokyo 2011 tickets are now completely sold out.
Normally we close the ticket sales while we still have a small amount of tickets left, but this year the tickets went very fast, well, we're now sold out, including about 70 student tickets -- this is particularly good, because we believe we need more young blood.
And due to the overwhelming number of inquiries, we're going to be selling a few tickets at the door (unfortunately this ticket will not have many of the benefits that come with the regular ticket :/ ). First come first serve, so if you haven't bought your tickets yet, come early on 10/14 to secure your ticket.
This year we will probably have a record breaking number of attendees, so I'm actually so anxious to announce the total number, but I will wait until the even is over because we might have a few more extra people coming in...
Anyway, if you're a Perl programmer in Japan, you might want to come mingle with us. There will be employers, there will be people looking for engineers. You will be able to listen to the future of Perl5, current status of Perl5, many cool hacks, go over the basics of UNIX programming with Perl.... and many more.
Hope to see you there!
