A Tale of Two YAPC's

This year the Send-A-Newbie fund will send an attendee to two different YAPCs. We were asked in early 2014 if we could sponsor an attendee to go to YAPC Asia this year instead of YAPC::EU as it made more sense for the attendee. We agreed so we have split the available funds across the two events.

For YAPC::EU in Sofia, Bulgaria we will be sending Upasana Shukla. Upasana is a Perl programmer who firmly believes in Open Source, she is sponsored by a number of organisations to do work within the community. Last year Upasana worked as part of the Gnome Outreach programme on Moose.
