Languages other than English are becoming more common in the U.S. The Internet opens up communication channels to the entire world. The challenge is to communicate with other countries and other cultures. The Unicode standard provides a way to communicate in the printed characters of the worlds many languages. Clyde Forrester will attempt to explain what Unicode is, its history, what it is used for, why it is used, and how to use it.
Clyde's talk will only take the first hour at most, so afterwards at the May 8th meeting, we may work on sharing more cool tricks from perl101.org, and adding new ones to the site. This is a great way for Chicago.PM as a group to help give back to the Perl community.
You'll have two opportunities to hear it:* May 8th, 2007, 7pm at Illinois Institute of Technology, Rice Campus in Wheaton -- No RSVP required
As with all Chicago Perl Mongers meetings, everyone is welcome, whether or not you consider yourself a member. We look forward to seeing you there!
