The Chicago Perl Mongers is pleased to announce the return of regular meetings. In association with Uniforum Chicago, we'll be having technical meetings with presentations every 2nd Tuesday of the month, starting January 9th, 2007.
Meetings will be held at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Rice Campus, Room 103. The meeting will start at 7pm and run until about 9pm.
Our first topic at our new space is "New Modules For New Year". Pete Krawczyk, Andy Lester and Josh McAdams will present a dozen cool modules that you may not have known about. Some will be useful, some will be entertaining, and all are available on CPAN. The only way to find out what they are is to attend!
There will be a drawing at the meeting for books provided by O'Reilly & Associates.For comments or questions, contact Andy Lester (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave a note on the meeting wiki page.
Pete Krawczyk has been a Perl programmer and system administrator for over ten years. Currently he's a programmer at Follett Library Resources in McHenry, in addition to several other projects he's involved in. His latest accomplishment was sharing organizational duties for the Chicago Perl Hackathon.
Andy Lester is the leader of the Chicago Perl Mongers, and there are few things he enjoys more than talking about Perl. Now in his 3rd decade of professional programming, Andy works for wiki company Socialtext as the open source project manager.
Josh McAdams is behind the only Perl podcast, Perlcast, at http://perlcast.com/. He also organized, with Pete Krawczyk, the 2006 YAPC::NA conference in Chicago.
