The Perl Conference is a high-quality, inexpensive, technical Conference that celebrates the Perl programming language. The beauty of The Perl Conference is that it remains accessible to everyone regardless of experience, yet it is still valuable to the most skilled programmers.

Each year the conference attracts hundreds of programmers from around the world, including luminaries such as Larry Wall, Ricardo Signes, and Damian Conway. We hope you will consider applying to present at this exciting event!

The Perl Conference 2019 will be held in Pittsburgh, PA from June 16-21, 2019. The main conference will be June 17-19, 2019 with tutorials on June 16, 20, and 21.
