           April 2002 Seattle Perl User's Group Meeting
     Title: "Damianiacal Modules", Part #1
   Speaker: Various SPUGsters
      Time: Tuesday, April 16, 2002 7-9pm
  Location: SAFECO bldg, Brooklyn St. and NE 45th St.
      Cost: Admission is free and open to the general public.

        The theme for this meeting, as well as those for May and
        June (if participation alows), will be a look at some of
	the many modules contributed by Damian Conway to the CPAN.

        The idea is that SPUGsters who are using his modules can
        describe them to us, show us how they're using them in
        their work, and give us a greater appreciation for what
        Damian has made available and how we might increase our
        productivity by using his software. Alternatively, those
        who have merely been *thinking* about using a certain
        module might seize this opportunity to lead a discussion
        on it, to inspire them to learn more about them.
        (There's nothing like committing to teaching somebody
        about something to motivate you to increase your
        understanding of it!)

        Not coincidentally, the timing of these meetings will
        allow any questions that arise about "Damianiacal
        Modules" to be answered by The Damian himself, when he
        visits us in July.
        Those wishing to participate please post a short message
        to the list indicating what module(s) you want to cover,
        how you are currently using it (if so), and for which
        meeting you'd like your presentation scheduled. I'll serve
        as moderator, and get back to you with Module "Bindings".

        Also not coincidentally, those attending these meetings
        will be told how they can help continue the flow of
        Damianiacal Modules, by contributing to The Perl
        Foundation. Please bring your checkbooks along! 8-}

        Here's a list of Damian's currently released modules, from
        which you can pick and choose when designing your

		         Damian's CPAN Modules
The recommended pre-meeting diner is the Cedars restaurant, at
50th St. and Brooklyn, in the University District, near the Safeco
building where the meeting will take place. The phone number is
527-5247. If you're planning to be there, please post a message to
the list indicating your expected arrival time. (Tim is teaching
"Intermediate Perl" next week, and will be lucky to just arrive at
the meeting on time).

As usual, those seeking liquid input may choose to congregate at
the Bigtime Brewery and Alehouse, to conduct their preparations
for the 7pm meeting.
