Hi everyone...

This email could be of interest to people interested in the
Perl programming language.  I know that in Toronto there is a
good-sized overlap between Linux people and Perl people (we
occasionally hold "joint sessions" of our user group meetings)
so we hoped to share this information with Linux folks more widely.

There have been some recent developments on the YAPC::NA front,
and it has been suggested to us that a reminder might be helpful
to some people, so here's a quick summary of the event.


    YAPC::NA 2005 (Yet Another Perl Conference, North America)
    in Toronto, Canada, Monday - Wednesday 27 - 29 June, 2005

    Home page:  http://yapc.org/America/

    Conference Location:  http://89chestnut.com/
                          A facility of the University of Toronto

Normally registration information would come first, but
accommodations are the bottleneck -- our main group reservation
(at the conference hotel) expires at the end of the week, and as
the conference approaches it will be extremely difficult to find
a hotel anywhere in the city.

Info on how to book at:



Register now!  :-)   We are on track to break attendance records
at YAPC::NA this year, and we could even sell out before the
conference starts.  The price for the full 3 days is USD$85.
We keep it insanely low through many generous sponsorships
and the all-volunteer organizational and speaking crews.
