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 2022 will be held in Houston, TX from June 21-25, 2022. The main conference will be June 22-24, 2022 with tutorials on June 21 and 25.
