The and Perl monger groups, DeepText LLC propose to organise YAPC::Europe 2013 in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine.

These groups organized the YAPC::EU 2011 in Riga with 300 people attending the conference.

The proposed theme is:

We propose the conference theme “Future Perl” as an indication of the fact that Perl has been developing during the last years and nobody is going to stop doing that.

Personally I think the group did a great job organizing the YAPC :: EU in Riga, where I had a remarkably well.

On the other hand the city of Kiev offers a great tourist attraction.


See the Kiev proposal here.

Other countries, like Spain, are thinking about a proposal, but with the economic crisis that exists, is very difficult to get government or corporate support, even with the ability of groups like that have people involved who has worked on courses and meetings.

Maybe we must wait a bit to see a YAPC::EU in Spain … but there are people working on it.

–Good Perl!–
