I noticed today that the call for papers for YAPC::Asia is open. I need to decide if I am going to submit a talk. The conference is taking place in Tokyo, 13-15 October. I will be at home in October so I plan to go even if I’m not going to speak. I’m looking forward to hearing Ricardo Signes, who is one of the guest speakers. Actually one of things I like about YAPC::Asia is that I get to hear a lot more talks. When I’m at YAPC::NA or YAPC::EU there are a lot of people that I want to speak to and the hallway tracks are very beneficial to me. But I do a lot less chatting at YAPC::Asia and as a consequence go and hear more talks.
I only got round to submitting a talk for YAPC::EU last week. I’m not very organised this year, but I have flights to Europe and I do plan to arrive in Riga a couple of days before the conference starts. I really don’t want a repeat of last year’s travel disasters that meant I missed more than half the conference.
