Every year at YAPC, attendees are treated to dinner one of the nights of the conference. This is also when the annual YAPC fundraising auction is held. This year’s dinner will be held on Tuesday night, June 27th, at Dave and Buster’s in Chicago, from 6:00 PM until at least 10:30 PM. We are currently arranging transportation from the conference hall; more details will be announced later.
In addition to dinner and the auction, we have reserved the lower level for free game play. Free play includes tons of arcade classics, as well as interactive games, such as jet ski and racing games. We also have two pool tables and a shuffleboard table reserved for our exclusive use during this time, as well as an indoor golf simulator.
We have several items from our fine auction sponsors, as well as a few other surprises. Thanks are in order to Big Nerd Ranch, O’Reilly, Apress, No Starch Press, Pragmatic Bookshelf, Stonehenge, Shopzilla, Openmake, and Manning Publications for donating items to the auction.
