The YAPC::Europe organisers have put out a call for training courses. They want a number of courses to offer to attendees in the couple of days before the conference. The call closed yesterday and I expect they'll be announcing the courses in a couple of weeks.
I've given training courses at the last couple of YAPC::Europes so I've sent in a proposal for a course. I'm hoping to run a new course called "An Introduction to Modern Perl". In this course we'll be looking at some of the tools that form the basis of all modern Perl programming. This will include Template Toolkit, Moose, DBIx::Class, Catalyst and Plack.
I hope that this sounds interesting to some of you and that you'll consider attending the course (if it gets accepted). Please keep an eye on the conference web site to see when the courses are announced.
And please consider holding off booking your travel and hotel until you've seen the selection of courses that will be offered before the conference.
I suppose now I should start thinking about some talks to give at the conference.
