Milton Keynes Perl Mongers will hold its first technical meeting of 2011 on
Tuesday 12th of April at the Open University's Systems Seminar Room.
Arrive at 7pm so the first talk can start promptly at 7.15.

This meeting is open to regular group members, newcomers and anyone else
who would like to listen to the talks.  If you can think of anyone who
might like to come, please invite them.

We have a good variety of talks planned including three from Tom  !

Here is what is planned

Colin Bradford will be talking about using XML::Compile to generate XML 
from schemas

Peter Edwards will talking about adding OAuth to the BBC World Service 
Twitter feeder

Tom Hukins will be giving three lightning talks on :-

    * Reusing Objects in your Modules
    * Git and the MKPM Website
    * Identifying bugs in perl with git bisect

I will be talking about my first CPAN module Schedule::Pluggable

and last but not least,

Matt Trout will be gracing us with his presence and giving us the 
benefit of his wisdom on a subject yet to be decided

Thanks to all who are giving talks for their time and effort.  I'm 
certainly looking forward to hearing them.

Finally, remember to arrive at the OU for 7pm on Tuesday 12th of April.

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 Inner East Parking on the 
campus map).
Take this left turn and head to the top left (North West on the campus 
map) of the car park.

The meeting is in the south east section of the Venables Building, 
nearest the Inner East Parking on the campus map.

Take the path (marked in orange on the campus map) west 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, you might 
want to ask for someone's phone number in case you have trouble finding us.
If you need a lift to the meeting, please ask our mailing list or IRC 
channel (see http://miltonkeynes.pmorg/ for details).

I hope to see you there
