Yet Another Perl Conference
The Yet Another Perl Conferences (YAPCs) are grassroots symposia on the Perl programming language promoted by The Perl Foundation, a non-profit corporation dedicated to the advancement of the Perl programming language through open discussion, collaboration, design, and code. We also support other collaborative events such as Perl workshops and hackathons.

Carl Cravens on his first YAPC
This is what I took from YAPC: a real desire to learn Perl at a deeper level. I sat in talks going, "I didn't know that!"
What did my employer get out of YAPC? Well, I'm dedicated to becoming a better Perl programmer, which is a plus for them.
