Hi There!

YAPC::NA, a.k.a. The Perl Conference is less than 3 weeks away, the early-bird discount will end in 5 days, and the hotel discount ends tomorrow!

There are also 7 tutorials around the conference with trainers such as Damian Conway, John Anderson, Dave Rolsky, Sawyer X, Mickey Nasriachi, and yours truly.

If you can't wait the 3 weeks to get your Perl fix, read on. There are a few really good articles this week.
