Chicago.pm Meeting - March 31st

Chicago.pm has another great meeting lined up and this one is only two days  
away! We are meeting on March 31st at 7pm on the 17th floor of the Google  
office at 20 W. Kinzie. Jonathan Rockway will be talking Devel::REPL and  
Michael Potter will be giving a talk about Bash scripting. Of course, there  
will be a few of us who stick around afterward to visit a local pub, so  
plan on taking the late train home.

Devel::REPL - Jonathan Rockway

Devel::REPL is interactive shell for Perl. REPL is an acronym for Read,  
Evaluate, Print, Loop. The shell provides for rapid development or testing  
of code without the need to create a temporary source code file.  
Think 'perl -d' only much much better.

Bash - Michael Potter

Bash (and scripting languages in general) act as the glue that hold other  
system components together. This presentation will focus on the under  
utilized features of bash that are critical to building production quality  
scripts. Demos will show you how and why to turn these features on.

Much of the bash syntax is redundant; Michael will also explain which  
syntax to use and which syntax to avoid.

Knowledge of any of the common UNIX scripting languages will be sufficient  
to attend this meeting and understand what is going on with Michael's Bash  

Please RSVP.

See you there
