April 6, 2007 - Planet YAPC

With so many Perl events going on around the world, I often wish I could take a quick peek to see what's going on at each one. I watch the conference sites and wikis when I can and I watch use.perl, but not everyone posts info there.

I think what I really want is a planet yapc aggregator like planet perl that could pull in blogs tagged with pre-arranged tags. For example, everyone blogging YAPC::NA would use yapcna2007, etc. We could include workshops, hackathons, etc. It seems there would still some maintenance involved to add blog sites to watch and add new conferences as they come along.

Anyone else think this is a good idea? Any volunteers interested in setting up a prototype?


Got some RSS feeds in mind? If you send me an e-mail with a list of feed URls I can put something together.

Hey, now we could use a designer who could style up a nice Perlish theme for us. Any recommendations?
