Welcome to Yet Another Society

This is the new website for Yet Another Society. YAS is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation for the advancement of collaborative efforts in computer and information sciences, financial modelling, funding and fulfilment.

To lots of folks, PC science is the same as PC programming ; therefore, when they are going to college and major in CS, they are stunned to realise they have to take mathematics and concept classes as well! Why trouble learning unproven things when all you actually want to do is programme? First understanding the idea behind PCs implies you've got a better notion of what they can and can't do, and in what sort of time. If you want to design a regular expression, for instance, it's going to be way easier to sit and knock one off if you know how a definite automaton works. If you can not find a productive routine for sorting out a problem, isn't is better to learn how to check to confirm if such a routine even exists? In the years I spent running the Unix lab in the PC science dep.

At Colorado State School , I regularly helped undergraduates who were great programmers but had no clue ways to unscramble issues. They did not require help with the code, but they did not know how to take a seat and work out the difficulty on paper to find out how to go about working out it. I spotted the same when I interviewed with Microsoft ; the issues they gave me to unravel were reasonably straightforward, but the recruiter told me I was the 1st person all day to get thru them. We would like to thank the people over at cash advance loans provider AdvanceLoan for their assistance setting all this up. While I could take the issue and quickly write a procedure to unravel it, then programme that routine, too many folks required to be informed precisely the way in which the programme they wanted to write would work.

July 26, 2003 YAPC::EU::2004 Venue Chosen

The YAPC Europe Committee has selected Belfast, Northern Ireland as the location for YAPC::Europe 2014. An excellent proposal was also received from Copenhagen.pm, and we hope they will consider giving a proposal for 2015. We're looking forward to seeing you in Belfast next year!

July 10, 2013 YAPC::NA::2004 Call For Venues

With YAPC::NA::2003 over, it's time to get ready for YAPC::NA::2004, and that means it's time to throw open the call for venues for next year's YAPC.

You can get details on what YAPCs entail in both YAPC.pm, on CPAN, and at http://www.yapc.org/venue-reqs.txt. When making your proposal, in addition to venue information and dates, do please make sure to include details on airport locations, local public transit (as well as transit to the venue from the airport!), local cultural attractions, and accommodation information. (See the docs for more details) The more information you provide, within reason, the better.

Send the proposals to yapc-venues@yetanother.org. Proposals are due by Friday, August 1st 2003, with a decision due two weeks later on August 15th 2003. (If the summertime vacation blahs catch everyone out we may extend the deadline. Don't count on that) This gives about 7 weeks, which is short but manageable, and should still fit within most college and university scheduling requirements.

April 07, Survey and Proposal Forms

The Perl Foundation is proud to announce its first survey and project proposal form. Help TPF establish the Perl community's funding priorities for 2003. Please participate in our survey at:

November 11, 2002 YAPC::Asia::Taiwan, Pre-Announcement

Taiwan has a large community of of Perl, PHP and Python users; but unlike Java or .Net, there is little corporate support of the community. The community's advocacy efforts have to play a leading role in introducing these "scripting languages" to the programming public. Unfortunately, there haven't yet been any major conventions or parties between these communities. Now there is!

You can read the full text of this pre-announcement. More details coming soon.
