still no YAPC::Euope 2013 proposals
The deadline for submitting proposals to host YAPC::Europe 2013 was a few days ago (5th July, see the Call for Venue), but no group submitted one.
If nobody steps up, there might be no YAPC::Europe 2013!
(unless I can convince the responsible parties that in case there is no group hosting the next YAPC, the current group
is forced to has the honor to do it again :-)
Copy'n'pasting from my last post on this issue:
It's really not much work, and all reports from previous organizers stating otherwise are grossly exaggerated!
Here's the whole Call for Venue, and here is a detailed document on what to do to bring YAPC::Europe 2013 to your wonderful hometown. And for even more organizers know-how, check out Perl Jam an upcoming book about "How to organise a conference ... and live to tell the tale." by barbie et.al. (also available on github)
I have sent a question about Kiev awhile ago, but got no answer. I was asking if it's worth sending an application at all.
Perhaps it's time to start the cycle of cities again from the start :-)
[Before anyone in London gets any ideas - THIS IS A JOKE!]
I think Kiev is a good venue.
No one has any visa issues getting to Ukraine, so it would open up YAPC::Europe to people from eastern Europe and Russia who wouldn't otherwise be able to go. They did a good job with YAPC::Russia...
Oh, and as everyone coming back from the football will tell you, the girls there are beautiful!
