Cluj.pm is back from YAPC::Europe
- August 27, 2014 5:42 PM
- Cluj.pm is back from YAPC::Europe 2014. We had a very good time, enjoyed the talks, had fun conversations with all the #perl guys and got back with plans for the upcoming Cluj.pm edition.
Though we won't be the organizers of the the upcoming edition, we wish the guys from Granada.pm all the best with organizing the next YAPC and we are looking forward to attending the event. A more detailed blog post on our YAPC experience coming soon.
Follow us, like us and keep up to date with our events. Have a great day everybody, despite the rainy weather (here in Cluj, at least)!
Fingers crossed for Cluj.pm!

Cluj.pm has submitted a bid to host YAPC::Europe 2015. The deadline was Monday, July 7th, and we couldn't be more anxious to find out next year's host. Fingers crossed for Cluj, everybody!
There are 2 good-looking proposals this year, to quote YAPC::Europe Foundation, our very own and Granada.pm's bid. The YEF Venue Committee will now review the proposals, get some more information from the submitters (if needed), and finally decide which city wins on Friday, August 8th.
As usual, the winner will be announced during YAPC::Europe 2014 in Sofia, so we will have to wait a bit longer for the secret to be unveiled!
All friends of Cluj.pm out there, root for us winning and bringing YAPC::Europe 2015 to Transylvania, Romania. Support Cluj.pm on Twitter and Facebook, or any other channel, tell us why Cluj is the best city and use #yapceucluj and #teamclujpm to show us your love! :-) Let's see who's with us!

Introducing the speakers

- This edition comes along with a great lineup of speakers. Let's not waste any more time and introduce them:
Guest speakers: Wendy & Liz
- Manager of Dijkmat BV
- Co-organizer of YAPC Europe 2001 in Amsterdam and of several Dutch Perl Workshops
- I love games like Fluxx, Chrononauts en Carcassonne.
- Vegetarian (In case you not know what this is, it does mean: no animals in my food, so no birds, fish, shrimps! I do eat cheese, eggs and yoghurt and I do drink milk: I am pro-abortion.). I hate mushrooms and asparagus.
- Made some interesting modules, to be found at CPAN.
- Co-organiser YAPC::Europe::2001 in Amsterdam
- Chairman of YAPC::Europe::Foundation (YEF)
- Self-educated software developer at the end of his Wanderjahre, who enjoys reading good CPAN modules and taming legacy code
- Writer of code, yeller of words, Sawyer X has been working in and with Perl for longer than he can remember, mostly because his memory is terrible.
- He is a CPAN author, frequent conference speaker, and organizer of Perl Mongers events.
- He's been programming in Perl for more than a year and took part in London Perl Workshop 2012 and YAPC::Europe 2013, where he held a lightning talk as a Perl newbie.
- 7 years' experience in academic debate as a debater, judge and event organizer
- I'm a 29 year old Perl hacker hailing from The Netherlands.
- I've been involved in the Perl community for 5-6 years now, but have been using Perl since around 2001.
- I've written some 60 CPAN modules but I'm also helping maintain various bits of the toolchain such as Module::Build and Test::Harness. Module::Build::Tiny and File::Map are some of the most commonly used modules that I've written.
- I'm a freelance software developer and IT consultant with experience as a network and system administrator.
- Things I do with Perl: GUI applications using wxPerl, database migrations between DBF files, MSSQL, SQLite, MySQL and Postgresql, custom CMS systems using Mojolicious, Template Toolkit, DBIx::Class and Moose.
