I've been to...all but one? YAPC::Asias to date. Often, slides are in
English, even when the talks aren't. There's usually a fair bit of
content in English, but not necessarily in every slot.
As a westerner, I wouldn't go to YAPC::Asia for the sessions. The
hallway track is quite good. And the pub track is stellar.
