This year's main theme is the revolution of data, divided in 4 main tracks: Data-Driven Journalism, Bioinformatics, Big Data and Enterpreneurship and Public Policies.
Of course, we have also a track dedicated exclusively to Perl Hacking, where you can talk about your projects and pretty much anything Perl-related.
It doesn't matter if your talk is for advanced developers or for people who are taking their first steps in programming. You have something to say and we want to hear it!
What are you waiting for? Submit your talk now!
