topic:   Pegex
speaker: Ingy döt Net 

Acmeism (http://acmeism.org) is the ability to think about and express 
one's creative ideas, beyond language borders. In programming, this 
means creating things that benefit multiple languages and communities. 
Perl is effectively one great community with 2 great languages (Perl 5 
and Perl 6). Acmeism is essential to mongers, but kindly extends to 
pythonistas, brigadiers and nodelings as well.

Pegex is an Acmeist parsing language. Think of it as Perl 6 Rules and 
Regexp::Grammars for all programmers. Write One Grammar, Parse 
Everywhere. This makes Pegex the quintessential tool in the Acmeist's 
belt. Pegex.pm is fully functional in Perl 5, and working it's way 
across the Acmeist landscape. Come see Ingy döt Net (an inventor of 
YAML and the father of Acmeism) talk about Pegex and the exciting 
future of Acmeism.

As usual, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab.
