Topic:   FreeTUIT - Codeless GUI Programming
Speaker: Eric Wilhelm 

You have an idea for some program that you've always said you would 
write when you got a round tuit. FreeTUIT gives you that first tuit for 
free. Now you can write a simple cross-platform desktop application 
without writing any code. Just declare the widget layout and put a 
shebang line on it and you have an executable application. From there, 
it's a simple matter of programming to respond to input events. 

FreeTUIT is a syntax and Perl runtime for concisely declaring the layout 
and configuration of GUI widgets (such as forms, toolbars, buttons, and 
dialogs). The freetuit interpreter drives a unified object layer which 
is accessible from event callbacks. The system is currently built on 
top of the wxWidgets toolkit, and is in transition to the Qt widget set. 

As always, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the LuckyLab.
