    • @rivkah: We believe that one of the best reasons to be at PePcon is the live experience and the connections that we make with other live attendees. :) So we are not currently planning on webcasting or recording the sessions.

      We have had attendees come to PePcon from six different continents (no one has ever come from Antarctica, sadly). We hope you can join us!
