The Perl & Raku Conference is a high-quality, inexpensive technical Conference that celebrates the Perl and Raku 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 2023 will be held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada from July 11-13, 2023.
