    When I worked in academia, I went frequently.

    Then I left academia. Before Covid, I still went regularly (once a year to YAPC::EU). Since Covid, I haven't been to a conference, still waiting for a review of my presentation to this year's conference in Helsinki.

    Interpretation of results: The time spent going to conferences is inversely proportional to the time available for completing polls.

    Fairly regularly ... Frequently

    What does that even mean?

    I chose "Fairly regularly" as I can't fathom what frequently would mean in the context of conferences.

    Once a year at the German Perl & Raku Workshop. Easy, as I am in the organising team. And once every other decade to YAPC/TPC.

    Once a year at this Big Data & AI World, Cloud Cyber Security Expo Europe, Cloud Expo Europe and Data Centre World thingy.

    And until a year ago, more than once a year to IT job fairs. That' frequent?

      What does that even mean?

      Well, quite. Regularity != Frequency. Halley's comet hits perihelion regularly but I'm unlikely to live to see the next one.

      I've been to conferences which are held regularly but infrequently too (eg. every 4 years).


      I imagined "Frequently" would be similar to a "Frequent flyer", so certainly more than once per year, but I couldn't pin a more precise number to it.

    Are we limiting this to just Perl conferences or any conference?

    I go to some form of business conference most months but have never been to a Perl conference.

      Any conference would count, though the poll was inspired by the upcoming Perl and Raku conference
