We have the major sponsors for YAPC::EU::2005 settled and we're now ready to announce them :-)
Remember, everything you'll see from now on will be greatly thanks to them. It is them who will be paying (in cash and with means) for lots of the stuff you'll see from now on.
With no further delay, here are the three companies sponsoring YAPC::EU::2005 in Braga, Portugal:
Fotango ( http://www.fotango.com )
Fotango has blessed us again (I believe we're now a hash of hashes or something). They have been sponsoring YAPC::EU ever since it started, back in 2000, and they're the only company who has sponsored it every single year so far.
Fotango is a Canon company with a team where Perl expertise abounds. It is most likely that some Fotango'ers will be speaking at YAPC::EU::2005.
Log ( http://www.log.pt )
Log is an Open Source consultancy company based in Lisbon. They've been accompanying and incentivating the process from its very start, and we have much to thank them.
Log works with several Open Source technologies, but it is with Perl that it excels.
Sapo ( http://www.sapo.pt )
Sapo is one of the major Portuguese ISP's, and if there's something greater than this PT company, it's surely their generosity. They've been the most extremely nice people from the very start of this sponsoring process.
Sapo has a very strong Perl team, and is currently hiring more people to strenghten their ranks. They'll inclusively be hiring during YAPC.
So there you go, here they are :-)
