Eligo Technology Attends YAPCEU::2016

This week saw the return of the biggest Perl conference in Europe, YAPC::EU, dedicated to the Perl programming language. Eligo technology flew across to Cluj-Napoca with our trademark pink stand to proudly sponsor the event. The conference started on Wednesday the 24th and was packed full of great presentations and workshops. This included Eligo’s Rick Deller Eligo offering his own Perl(s) of wisdom by presenting one of his RicksTalks series that gave an overview of the tech market, as well as a Q&A about jobs in Perl.  The conference was a fantastic opportunity to meet people in the industry and get further insight into the Perl community. Eligo technology look forward to attending again next year!
