This is the official press release launched this week here in Brazil. I've just added the "monk-names", so you can see who's who. :)

---- Begin english ----

The International Perl Developers Meeting - YAPC::Brasil::2005 (Yet Another Perl Conference) will take place during the 6th Free Software International Forum, that will take place from june 1st to june 4th at PUCRS.

This is the first brazilian meeting supported by the Perl Foundation, entity based on the United States of America that supports the use and development of the language worldwide.

The meeting will be hosted by Porto Alegre Perl Mongers, directed by Er Galvão Abbott (DaWolf) and organized by Brasil Perl Mongers, represented by Flávio S. Glock (fglock) and Marco Lima (mago). One of the biggest attractions of the meeting will be the presence of Randal L. Schwartz (merlyn), one of the most influent personalities of the language worldwide and co-author of many Perl books, specially the famous Camel Book. Schwartz will give two lectures during the meeting.

Some YAPC activities will be free, while others, that will take place in the Forum will be available only for those who subscribed for it.

The Perl programming language allows the creation of programs that run on UNIX, Windows, Macintosh, among other Operating Systems. The language has many efficient text handling functions, feature that made it popular for Web programming, in addition to be heavily used on administrative tasks in UNIX systems, where the language was born and raised.

A linguagem de programação Perl permite a criação de programas em ambientes UNIX, Windows, Macintosh e outros sistemas operacionais. A linguagem possui funções muito eficientes para manipulação de textos, o que a torna popular para programação Web, além de ser muito utilizada em tarefas administrativas de sistemas UNIX, onde a linguagem nasceu e cresceu.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
