> This year I'll be doing three tutorials at the big Perl conference in
> Monterey. One of them is new; it's called `Advanced Programming
> Techniques in Perl'. I need to practice this before I go to Monterey,
> so I'll be giving the tutorial in Philadelphia next month. If you
> were to attend in Monterey, you would pay $320. But you can come to
> my practice session for $5. Any money I have left over after expenses
> will be donated to the Free Software Foundation.
> The tutorial will be at 6 PM on Thursday, 11 May at the University of
> Pennsylvania Literacy Center at 3910 Chestnut Street in Philadelphia.
> It will end around 9:30 or 10:00 PM.
> Here's the brochure description:
> Who Should Attend:
> Intermediate Perl programmers and those with some Perl
> experience and basic familiarity with packages, objects,
> references, and modules.
> We'll expand on the highly successful 'Perl Hardware
> Store' talks of the past two Perl conferences, but with a
> more serious bent. The Hardware Store talks introduced
> powerful programming techniques such as iterators,
> memoization, and higher-order computation that are drawn
> from the Lisp and functional programming worlds. In this
> new tutorial we'll explore these and other techniques in
> much greater depth than the Hardware Store talks.
> Course Outline:
> Dispatch tables
> Caching, memoization, and lazy computation
> Streams and infinite lists
> Higher-order functions: merging, filtering, and reducing
> Higher-order functions: composition
> Functional parsing
> Sideways approaches to object-oriented programming
> Constraint systems
> Control flow alternatives
> Short version: It's about the same stuff that my book will be about.
> You must make an advance reservation; I have room for only 30 people.
> To reserve, please send an email message to
> mjd-perl-practice at plover.com
> If I get more than 30 requests for reservations, articipants will
> be selected by me based on some combination of:
> * Promptness of response (ignoring responses that arrive before
> * Random drawing
> * Blatant favoritism
> I wanted to say that I hoped to see lots and lots of people there, but
> unfortunately we only have room for 30.
> Please circulate this message to any people or groups that you think
> might be interested.
> My grateful thanks to Steve Linberg and to the Penn Literacy Center
> for providing the space and AV equipment for my talk.
