Bids for YAPC::EU::2010 – Pisa and Kiev!

Organizing a conference is hard, let’s go shopping! For the first time I’m
officially helping, not just for the Italian Perl Workshop this year, but
possibly for YAPC::EU::2010 too. I’ve been working with the href=""> guys on the proposal to host the European
Perl Conference 2010 in Pisa.

We submitted the bid on Monday, and it’s
just been announced
that the teams competing are: Pisa (us) and Kiev in Ukraine. Wow! YEF have actually
published both our bids on that link, which is fantastic for transparency.

It also means that we can read their bid… and it’s a good one! Looks like
we’ve got some competition. Of course our Pisa bid is excellent too – in
any case, the next couple of weeks till we find out who won are going to be a
nailbiting time!
