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

The Perl & Raku Conference 2020 will be held in Houston, TX from June 23-27, 2020. The main conference will be June 24-26, 2020 with tutorials on June 23 and 27.
