Due to COVID-19, the organizers of the conference have agreed to cancel the event. For both safety as well as with the expectation that a new rule closing organized events over 3 people until June in the Netherlands has made the conferene this year untenable. The conference will continue in 2021 (likely to be in August just as this year was scheduled for). We are looking into the possibility of a remote conference sometime this summer in collaboration with the American conference.


10-14 August.


Monday and Tuesday there will be workshops. New this year, a beginner workshop will be included in the price of the standard conference ticket. Other more advanced workshops are also planned for Monday and Tuesday in line with previous conferences.

We’ll have dozens of sessions on a great variety of topics. Don’t forget to sign up for one of our great all-day tutorials to engage in some deep learning.


Attend great presentations from all parts of the Perl community, including luminaries like Damian Conway. Other keynote speakers yet to be announced. Presentations and talks will be Wednesday through Friday.


Meet your fellow Perl programmers. We expect nearly 300 Perlers and Rakuers to attend from around Europe and the world! This is a great opportunity to connect with the community.


As a community-organized conference, we pride ourselves on keeping this event affordable.


The conference will take place in the city of Amsterdam at the beautiful Het Sieraad.
