Although YAPC::Europe::2011 preparations are well underway in Riga, it is time for the venue committee of the YAPC::Europe Foundation (YEF) to think about the location of the 2012 conference. YAPC::Europe wouldn't exist without dedicated teams of volunteers, and we are always excited to see the enthusiasm and learn about the new ideas the community has to offer.

Further information about preparing a complete application can be found on the YAPC::Europe Foundation website. Proposals submitted to the venue committee will be added to this public repository (you may provide private information separately) to benefit future organizers.

The deadlines which apply to this portion of the procedure are:
  • Saturday, 30 April: Deadline for sending a letter of intent. This letter simply expresses interest in hosting the conference and provides contact information (both email and telephone) for at least two organizers. This is an optional step but it can be to your advantage to alert the venue committee of your proposal.
  • Thursday, 30 June: Deadline for sending proposals to host YAPC::Europe 2012.

Please send your questions, letters of intent, and proposals to venue@yapceurope.org.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

[ambrus]: ad code examples.
[ambrus]: I'm not trying to recommend PHP, but I think it has way too bad a name because of its past.
[ambrus]: This is different from MS Word, which was already a good editor in the pre-unicode days (in word for windows versions 2 and 6, which ran on windows 3 but also on windows 95), only it wasn't trying to solve the task of writing maths papers back then.
[Discipulus]: ah ok, sounds reasonable; with no fear: Perl all life long
[ambrus]: Mind you, LaTeX is currently still useful for writing math paper or snippet content without styling in such a way that the
[ambrus]: formatting conventions of a journal or website can be quickly applied to it, and MS Office and LibreOffice has not quite solved this (although it's better for this than it used to be),
[ambrus]: which is sort of a drawback compared to the ages of typewritten manuscripts representing content only to which the typesetter applies formatting, but that process required much more manual labor.
[ambrus]: If you want to typeset a manuscript, you can still do much less work then in the manual typesetting ages and get good formatting.
[ambrus]: All with only cheap modern computers and software.
[ambrus]: Something you can have at home and your corner print shop, without a whole printing press's worth of equipment.
