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.
