For those of you still unclear as to the schedule of things this month,
here you go!

Intro to OO Perl
Randal Schwartz presents "perldoc perlboot" live, with references to
animals, procreation, death, and eating. Learn about Perl's object system
from the ground up. Familiarity with references, Perl code, and death is
helpful. Sense of humor mandatory.
Note the date! Randal's going to be out of town on the second Wednesday,
which is our normal meeting day, so we're having it a week early.
A WEEK FROM TOMORROW

Testing with Ovid
We hear a lot about testing, including testimonials, talks, rants, etc.
However, the biggest obstacle to testing is taking those first steps. At
this meeting, Ovid (that's me) will sit down at his laptop and actually
write a module, from scratch, using test driven development. You'll see
how tests work, how they're applied in the real world and you might even
learn a thing or two even if you're already comfortable with testing.
Afterwards, as always, beer at the Lucky Lab!
