YAPC::Brasil 2005 é sucesso absoluto

A iniciativa dos grupos de desenvolvedores brasileiros de trazer a Porto Alegre o primeiro Encontro Internacional de Desenvolvedores Perl homologado pela Perl Foundation foi um sucesso.

Realizado paralelamente ao 6º Fórum Internacional de Software Livre, o evento trouxe excelentes resultados, demonstrando que a linguagem Perl está mais presente do que nunca entre os programadores.

Palestras lotadas e um crescente interesse por parte dos participantes do Fórum pautaram o evento, que trouxe à cidade Randal L. Schwartz, uma das personalidades mais influentes da linguagem no mundo. Schwartz esteve presente na mesa de abertura do YAPC::Brasil, além de apresentar palestras em ambos os eventos.

O encontro culminou na criação da SPB - Sociedade Perl do Brasil, entidade que será responsável pelo apoio ao desenvolvimento e utilização da linguagem no território nacional.

O próximo YAPC brasileiro acontecerá em novembro em São Paulo e já conta com a presença confirmada de Randal L. Schwartz.
