How are locations decided upon? I don't see anything on the YAPC site.

    People submit proposals for locations after I put up the announcement to submit venue proposals (this was done on Sept 21 '02). Then, we discuss pros and cons of each location and a location is decided on. The venue announcement was on yetanother.org, perlfoundation.org, use.perl.org and anywhere else that picked up the story.

      I am so glad it's in Florida! Finally, a Perl event I don't have to get airline tickets for. So many of the events are on the West coast. What is it with Oregon and Perl hackers? Most of the major Perl events ignore Florida. The closest most of the Perl demigods ever get to Florida is on a geekcruise!

        I look forward to seeing you here :)

      Any insights onto what are the major selling points of a location? How much is the country considered? I know there was at least one in Canada, has there ever been a YAPC in Mexico? I'd also assume that suitable facilities would be essential but how much more of a bonus are the extras - ie bigger than necessary conference rooms, other attractions etc.

      Also what role do the local Perl groups/people play in it? Thanks.

        There are different selling points for different people. Mainly, a consideration is cost. Since it is funded by a grass roots movement cost is very important. Also considered is what there is to do in the area. If people bring family, there should be things for the family not attending the conference to do during the day. Things also considered are locations of Perl groups, and where other conferences are. Having different locations allows for people who go to YAPC(s) to see different places.

        There hasn't been a YAPC::Mexico... yet :-)

        Cheers,
