Yet Another Perl Conference


Technology, Open Source, Perl...

As Specialist Perl Recruiters, we were delighted to present at YAPC.

This weekend the biggest conference in Europe, dedicated to the Perl programming language took place; YAPC::Europe. 200 Perl specialist developers from around the world descended on Sofia, Bulgaria for an exciting programme of talks, presentations, networking drinks and events.

Keynote speakers included industry leaders Curtis Poe (‎Ovid‎), Matt S Trout (‎mst‎) and Sawyer X  who all provided great insight and debate for the delegates. I also managed to catch R Geoffrey Avery’s talk (rGeoffrey) which was very interesting.

I was pleased that the auditorium was full for my presentation on the Recruitment in Perl: The state of the Perl Market! I met many new and familiar faces who came up after the presentation to discuss it, ask questions and comment further.

The video should also be available soon!

We have returned to the office in a positive mood as the market feels both strong and exciting. We are now even busier with lots of new Perl jobs with both new and existing Perl clients. Our database of Perl Developers has also grown impressively so we look forward to working with all our new contacts to match the people to the right jobs.

If you would like to discuss any elements of my presentation I am more than willing to speak on the phone. Alternatively, if you would like advice on your Perl career or perhaps finding the best people join your team, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.   020 8944 4187    @PerlRick
