Two stateside events that may be of interest, 1) YAPC::NA 2009 and 2)
PPW 08 ...


   Fellow Perl Mongers,
   I am very happy to announce that Pittsburgh will be hosting YAPC::NA in
   2009.  Mark your calendars for June 22 through Wednesday, June 24.  Oh
   just block out the entire week we are going to have some Perl fun in the


The Pittsburgh Perl Mongers are hard at work planning this years  
Pittsburgh Perl Workshop. (We are also planing YAPC::NA 09 but more on  
that later. But go ahead and mark your calendars for June 22 through  
Wednesday, June 24, 2009). Mark your calendars for this years PPW will  
be October 11th and 12th 2008.

At this years YAPC::NA I was surprised at how much was going on before  
and after YAPC. So if you plan on coming to PPW and would like to have  
a hack-a-thon or something before or after the official PPW event and  
would like some help planing that let us know and we will do what we  
can to help.

PPW08 will have more training, more fun, and more talks than every  
before but if you think we might be missing something send us a note  
about it and maybe we can make it happen. We can not make everyone's  
wishes come true but we would like to try.
