The Job Fair is underway in Room 2.120 of the Thompson Center.
This is a great opportunity to visit the Sponsors and learn about career opportunities available from the many companies. It is also a chance to pick up some of the special swag that the companies have brought along just for you.
If you are looking to further your career or to get an understanding of who is hiring, or simply want to come along and thank the sponsors please visit.
You can also make a donation to The Perl Foundation while you are there to help them continue to support you, Perl and our community.
This YAPC we’ve provided a hack-a-thon space for the entire week. Come meet, hack, contribute! Below is a picture of some hard working perl hackers who may need company. You can find the hack-a-thon at Thompson (TCC) floor 2 room 2.122
The YAPC::NA banquet and game night will be happening at The Stage on 6th Street at 6:30pm on Tuesday night. If you bring your games (board games, card games, whatever kind of games) to the conference in the morning, they will be shuttled to the Game night just after the Lightning Talks.
Immediately after the lightning talks, catch the shuttle in the LBJ parking lot and it will take you directly to game night. Drinks will be served when you arrive and dinner will be served shortly afterwards.
Dinner will be catered from Salt Lick BBQ. Not to worry, there will be a vegan option.
Have the appropriate amount of fun!
Howdy YAPC::NA attendees!
This is Jonathan “Duke” Leto here. The main YAPC::NA conference begins tomorrow. If you are driving to the conference location (The Thompson Conference Center) make sure you park in LOT 40. Again, make sure you park in LOT 40.
If you park in LOT 39, which is close, you will be entering a world of pain. You don’t want that. For your visual pleasure, here are some pictures of the parking lot entrance.
In the picture above you can see an example of a rare “Wild Ingy”. Make sure not to feed them, as they can be violent during mating season.
Tomorrow is training and the first day of the Hackathon. If you’re not in training and you’ve never been to a hackathon, all you need to do is show up and volunteer. There will be plenty of projects in need of help and people to show you how you can.
How to get there: You can find all of the points of interest for YAPC in this handy dandy google map: http://www.yapcna.org/yn2013/map.html. You want to go to the Thompson Conference Center tomorrow. A close up can be seen here: http://goo.gl/maps/tPSF6. Note that parking is in lot 40 not lot 39. Parking is free.
How to get your WiFi fix: The SSID is ‘attwifi’. You’ll use the coupon code that’s on your badge. This will be provided tomorrow if you attend an official event.
The Arrival Dinner: Hula Hut is out of seating. If you didn’t manage to get a spot, we encourage you to join the Anti-Arrival Dinner or form your own social gathering.
See you soon,
