Milton Keynes Perl Mongers will hold our first technical meeting of 2009
at 7pm on Tuesday 13th January at the Open University in the same room
as last time.

This time we have many people talking for 5 minutes about various things
they've been doing with Perl:
  Tony Edwardson: only
  Rod Norfor: Chart::Gnuplot
  Colin Bradford: memcached
  Jon Allen: Creating PDF files with Catalyst
  Peter Edwards: Exceptions
  Tom Hukins: Building your own Perl

Jon has also offered to present his full length "Online Retail with
Perl" talk that he gave at last year's London Perl Workshop:

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 Entrance G at 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.

If you haven't attended one of our meetings at the OU before, I
encourage you to ask for someone's phone number in case you have trouble
finding us.  If you need a lift to the meeting, please ask.

See you next week,
