Perl Genealogy Application

Burke Gallagher

Tuesday Nov 13th 2001 at 7:00pm
College of DuPage Bldg M Rm 147


We will be taking apart the code that produces a genealogy website. This will be an open and interactive discussion of the design decisions and the perl techniques used. I am planning on a quick overview of the project followed by 'no holds barred' questions and comments session to disect and improve the code. The project is a mix of perl, mod_perl, and MySQL.
