Milton Keynes Perl Mongers will hold our second technical meeting of
2008 at 7pm on Monday 8th September at the Open University in the same
place as last time.

We have various guest speakers coming to visit from lots of exciting

Barbie from Birmingham will introduce Perl's test framework.

Robbie Bow from Cambridge will tell us his thoughts on SQL and

Dave Cross from London will tell us about a topic of our choice as
discussed recently on this list.

We'll fill the remaining time with a few lightning talks.  These talks
last only 5 minutes, so they don't need slides or lots of preparation
(but you can do both if you wish).  Lightning talks offer a great
opportunity for those having minimal experience of either Perl or
presenting to share ideas or experience.

Please let me know this week if you would like to present a lightning

Finally, remember to arrive at the OU for 7pm.  Here's how to find us:
 First, find the OU campus as described at

 Enter the campus (signposted Open University, not Open University East),
 via Brickhill Street (V10).

 Take the middle lane past Security (on the left), through the barriers, and
 then turn right on to Ring road East.

 Ahead you will see the road narrows to single lane on your side of the road,
 where there are no entry signs.  Just prior to this is the entrance to a car
 park on the left (marked East parking extension on the campus map).  Take
 this left turn and head to the top right (North West on the campus map) of
 the car park.

 The meeting is in Venables Building, specifically the section marked South
 East on the campus map.

 Take the path (marked in yellow on the campus map) East from the car park
 toward the centre of campus.

 Take a right under an archway in to the courtyard area bound by Venables
 South, East, and South East, keeping right (heading North East on the campus
 map), behind the building section marked South East.

 You will find a double door on your right, which is the entrance to the
 South East section of Venables Building.

 We'll see you there, as these are usually access controlled doors, so you
 will probably need to be let in.

See you on the 8th,
