London Perl Mongers organises technical meetings every two months. The
technical meetings are a chance to find out what has been going on in
the Perl community, what techniques people are using and how Perl
integrates with other software.
The next technical meeting will be on the 12th April from 7pm to 9pm
(you may arrive earlier, it's a pub) and the speaker is Damian Conway,
a prominent member of the Perl community, a proponent of
object-oriented programming, and the author of several books (Object
Oriented Perl, Perl Best Practices). You have to sign up to attend,
It will be held at the Prince Alfred pub in Bayswater and is hosted by
NET-A-PORTER.COM. Many thanks to Steve Purkis, NET-A-PORTER.COM and
everyone involved for allowing us to use this wonderful venue.
Damian will be presenting:
“You unlock this door with the key of a hash. Beyond it is another
dimension - a dimension of strange constructs, a dimension of
improbable behaviour. You're moving into a land of both weird syntax
and unlikely semantics, of unintended features and unexpected beauty.
You've just crossed over into... The Twilight Perl.” Join Damian for a
head-trip through a dozen or so arcane and sinister “features” of
Perl. Much of what you thought was required... isn’t; some of what you
thought was impossible... is easy. Cast off your strictures and
warnings and set your programs free. Embrace the Dark Side of the
Code. You have nothing to lose - except your sanity!
Our venue size is limited so you will have to sign up to attend this meeting.
See you there, Léon
