A while ago, the Lisbon, Portugal conference committee asked some programmers to make videos explaining why the next YAPC::EU should be in Lisbon, Portugal. I thought they were asking for something longer than what they were, so my video comes in at a minute and a half. They were happy with it anyway and apparently sent it with their proposal along with brian d foy's compilation. I might add that if you don't know Perl or the Perl community, some of this won't make sense, so there's a quick glossary after.
- Pronounced "yap-see", it stands for "Yet Another Perl Conference"
- Another programming language with a friendly (and sometimes not-so-friendly) rivalry with Perl
- One of my brothers, who's far more intelligent than the video would suggest. I'm grateful he let me portray him as a complete idiot.
