Here's an advance notice of what's coming up in this month's meeting.
More details will follow later.

Incidentally, I'm working on getting mjd (Mark-Jason Dominus) to
visit Seattle in October to deliver some commercial training classes,
and do some free SPUG talks.  So start buttering up your managers to
pony up the dough for your next dose of world-class Perl training! 8-}

                  "Extreme Perl", by Asim Jalis
In this talk, you will learn:

- What's eXtreme Programming, Unit Testing, Refactoring, and
  Emergent Architecture.

- What's in the CPAN unit testing modules and how to use
  these modules to tighten your code.

- How to jump into coding without spending weeks and months
  in architecture and design, and still deliver code that is

- How to shock your product manager by cheerfully accepting
  brand new requirements and then implementing them without
  breaking any existing functionality.

We will talk about unit testing, refactoring, and emergent
architecture as they apply to Perl, and then we'll do some
mob programming to experience how it works in practice.

working on printing applications of web services using

            "Mail::SpamAssassin", by Creede Lombard

Still waiting for full details on this talk to come in,
but my understanding is that it will discuss the
Mail::SpamAssassin module (for filtering SPAM), and how
to use it with Mail::Audit. Or something like that. Watch
for updates!
