An initiative of the Enlightened Perl Organisation


The Send-a-Newbie program is designed to enable people go to YAPC who have previously never been to a major Perl event, who are unable to do so by their own means and, hopefully, already involved in some way in the Perl community.

The program was developed by Edmund von der Burg, but as of 2010 the Enlightened Perl Organisation has been the principal managers of the program. Mark Keating has agreed to be the primary contact to take care of the program.

Please see the guidelines for application if you wish to apply, a list of our donations/donators thus far is available. If you would like to donate then please contact Mark using the address Donations can be made right away using the same address through Paypal or using the button below.
