Yet Another Perl Conference 2013

Programming Republic of Perl
This week in Austin,Texas, Liquid Web employees are attending the YAPC 2013 (Yet Another Perl Conference) to support and celebrate the Perl programming language’s lasting presence among free and open source software projects. A long-time supporter of Perl, Liquid Web is proud to also sponsor the conference and continue to support the community, as we have done in the past.

As a powerful and dynamic programming language, much of Liquid Web’s software has been developed using Perl and we continue to use the language today in many of our systems, such as billing, support and monitoring. Our founder and CEO has spoken on this previously:

“Giving back to the Perl community is something we’ve been interested in for some time. As Liquid Web continues to expand and grow, we find the need for more developers proficient in Perl grows in kind. Supporting Perl’s continued excellence ensures that important programs that have proven invaluable to Liquid Web’s success will continue to perform to our specific needs.”

In fact, the need for Perl Developers is still growing even today and our search for talented and qualified applicants continues as our companies expands.

This week’s conference celebrates Perl’s 25th Anniversary, provides various speakers looking at the future of Perl and offers training opportunities for attendees. The training opportunities include: Zero to Perl, Test Automation using Perl, Git for Ages 4 and Up, Web and mobile development using Perl, HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript, Intro to Moose, and Advanced Moose. If you’re attending the conference, let us know what your favorite session was!
