You can now re-live the excitement from YAPC::NA::2005 because the Toronto Perl Mongers, YAPC, and me, are happy to finally announce the availability of the proceedings from YAPC::NA::2005 held in Toronto.

It contains HTML navigation pages, biographies, presentation slides, audio and video recordings of the presentations and candid photos from the daytime and nighttime activities. All this is available in two forms:

  1. A CD that contains everything except for video recordings.
  2. A DVD that contains everything except for the audio recordings.

The navigation pages on both media indicate the availability of the audio and video recordings, even if they are not provided on that media. Note that there may be some talks that are available in audio only, so download both the CD and DVD if you want the full set.

ISOs for both the CD and DVD are downloadable using BitTorrent.

Go to:

Click on the 'View Torrents' link near the top, Select the link for the appropriate torrent; CD for audio, DVD for video. You will see information, including a list of files in the torrent. Click the 'Download torrent' button to start the BitTorrent download.

If you are unfamiliar with BitTorrent, see the help page at for more information.

Alternatively you can have a CD/DVD set shipped to your address for $5 US for Canadian and continental US destinations and $10 US for all other destinations. To arrange shipment, send a email to: fhew3 at cogeco dot ca.

    Might this be a good thing to send to the mailing list, assuming it still exists? I just saw this announcement now, and I'm guessing I'm a more active Perlmonks user than a high percentage of YAPC participants.

      Which mailing list(s) are you thinking of?

      I've sent it to my local groups, and someone sent it out on my behalf to the YAPC list, and I'm still trying to figure out an 'easy' way to send it to all PM lists. I also tried to get the announcement published on other 'news sites' such as LWN, Slashdot, LinuxToday; they haven't published it. And I haven't figured out how to contact Lxer, or PerlPodcast, to have them announce it. :-(

        That's very odd—I was thinking of the YAPC list, since I didn't get anything on it (assuming we're talking about the same YAPC list, of course—I mean the one I signed up for when I registered last spring). Possibly some overanxious spam-filter did the announcement in, or some other such mishap. In any case, my apologies for misattributing the cause.
