For me, the best thing about YAPC is always the opportunity to
reconnect with the "tribal spirit of Perl".

The organizers are to be commended for arranging a fine hotel at
a reasonable price, which set the stage for much valuable social
interaction. There's nothing like hanging out in a place where
anybody you meet in the hallway turns out to be the author of
another module you admire, and has useful insights into the
modules you've written yourself!

Drinking by the pool with the likes of Randal, Abigail, Uri,
Leon Brocard, and Ingy Singh offered additional opportunities
to share thoughts on all things Perlish.

At the conference itself, masterfully keynoted by The Damian,
many interesting papers where presented to complete the
experience. YAPC is a must-attend on my conference schedule, both
as a tutorial presenter and happy tribal member.
