inspired by stas bekman's visit last summer, i've been working on some
speakers to make this summer even better for seattle perl hackers.
with two confirmed speakers already, and two tentative, this promises
to be a great summer. below is an overview of what i've been able to
plan so far. this can also be found on the spug wiki, which i will
keep up to date as information changes (http://wiki.seattleperl.org/)

June 23 (Confirmed) -- Audrey Tang

Audrey Tang is the creator of pugs, a Haskell-based Perl 6
implementation. She will present Deploying Perl 6, which will be given
again, just days later, at YAPC::NA.

July (tentative) -- brian d foy

brian d foy is the author of Learning Perl, Intermediate Perl, and the
logical follow up and soon to be released tome, Mastering Perl. He has
tentatively accepted an invitation to speak at SPUG in July, just
before OSCON.

August (Confirmed, date TBD) -- Mark Jason Dominus

Mark is a well-respected perl hacker, a dynamic speaker, author of the
highly-regarded Higher Order Perl, and is working on his next book,
Perl Program Repair Shop and Red Flags. For his presentation, Mark
will take some code SPUG gives him, refactor it, and present it to us,
with lessons learned. Much thanks goes to whitepages.com for
sponsoring Mark's visit.

September (tentative) -- chromatic

chromatic is a skilled perl hacker and editor at O'Reilly. He has
tentatively accepted an invitation to speak at SPUG in September.
