Don't miss the next issue!

Hi there!

YAPC::NA is coming to Orlando, Florida and the dead-line to submit talk proposals is in less than 48 hours! If you have not submitted your talk yet, do it now. You will still have plenty of time to actually prepare your talk.

YAPC::NA is also going to have a number of 'Master Classes'. I've just sent in two proposals. One for front-end web development and one for building a web API. If you are interested in either of those, let me know!

In the meantime, enjoy your week and your weekly dose of Perl!
