Issue #258 - 2016-07-04 - Where are the YAPC::NA blog posts?

latest | archive | by Neil Bowers
Don't miss the next issue!

After most conferences we usually see a flurry of blog posts. These can be helpful when deciding what talk videos to watch. There haven't been many post-YAPCNA this year.

So a request: when you go to a conference, please consider writing a blog post afterwards, even just a short one. It's helpful and interesting for those of us who can't attend. And we Perl Weekly editors appreciate it too :-)
