Hi all,
I really liked the YAPC and truly hope that Gabor will continue this blessed
However, I think that if one can't distinguish between $ @ and %, he won't
get any use of the YAPC.
Do a Perl course, then come and expand your knowledge.

About the auction:
I, personally, prefer to have a price list over the available item for sale.
In addition, I would really appreciate the ability to buy them during the
whole day instead of waiting for the last minute.

If needed, I volunteer to be the seller next year.

I hope others will write down their experience with the conference we had on
Thursday, let me write a few notes by myself.

There were fewer people than in previous years, even some of the regular
visitors of the monthly meetings were missing.

I was trying to ask around among those who were there what do they think why
would one decide not to come to the conference ?
We could not come up with any good reason.

I understand technical issues such as travelling but I don't understand
those who say they are not interested. I'd be glad to hear some explanations
from those who skipped the conference.

Anyway, even though there were fewer people than earlier and even
though nearly everyone I talked to said the auction will not
work it actually brought in more money than my highest expectations.

We managed to sell the presents for more than 5000 NIS.

So I would really like to thank both the sponsors who gave
the presents and those who stayed there for the auction. Especially
those who spent their money and helped to give some contribution
to The Perl Foundation.

Before the conference I though I won't do any more YAPCes but
seeing the results of the auction I decided that it is worth the

Thank you
