It is my great pleasure to announce that the Send-A-Newbie initiative will once again be run by the Enlightened Perl Organisation for YAPC::EU::2012::Frankfurt.

The SAN initiative is aimed at introducing people new to a Perl event to this principal European conference, to Perl conferences and to the community.

Applications can be made by anyone* with the only condition being that they must not have attended a large Perl event previously.

We are also asking at this time for donations to the initiative. The Enlightened Perl Organisation provides all planning and organisation but the funds to achieve this initiative are raised from sponsorship and donations. All donations are welcome whether individual or corporate. If you would like your logo on our site for corporate sponsorship or have a specific sponsorship need or request then please contact Mark to discuss your needs. Visit the donations page for more information.

*We do not discriminate on age, background, gender, location or fiscal status. Though you must have a visa/passport to travel to attend the conference in the host country, these cannot be provided.
