November 2007 Seattle Perl Users Group (SPUG) Meeting
Topic: Exploring Opcodes in the Perl5 VM
Speaker: Josh ben Jore
Meeting Date: Tuesday, 20 November 2007
Meeting Time: 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
Location: Whitepages.com offices, downtown Seattle
Cost: Admission is free and open to the public
This coming Tuesday, October 16th, is the next meeting of the THE SEATTLE
PERL USERS GROUP.
This month, Josh ben Jore will continue our education on the internals
of the Perl5 virtual machine, focusing on opcodes.
Josh is a programming language geek and a senior software engineer at
WhitePages.com. Hack #83 in the Perl Hacks book was contributed by Josh.
The book's Acknowledgments has this to say about him:
Joshua ben Jore came to Perl because he had to write a CGI app for a
political campaign and he'd heard that Perl was best for that sort
of thing. He stayed when he found out for himself how wonderful CPAN
was. His latest projects have been working toward getting Lispy
macros and lazy evaluation in Perl and learning what Prolog has to
offer. He is well-known at perlmonks.org under the handle diotalevi
and admits to being a Morris dancer.
So, be sure to bring your friends, stray pets (ahem), and, of course,
don't forget to bring yourself! We'll see YOU at the next SPUG meeting!
Thanks again to all the SPUG members that show up at meetings or
participate on the list to make the group worthwhile in the first place,
and all the JAPHs out there for just being.
Whitepages.com is located on the 16th floor of the Rainier Square
Tower (1301 5th Avenue, Seattle) which is across from the 5th Avenue
See the directions for a quick primer on how to reach us from
various locations across Puget Sound.
There are plenty of locations to park in the area, including on the
street. If you're looking for off-street parking, you can park in the
Rainier Square garage which has an entrance on Union St.
After 6PM, the building management restricts access to most floors.
Our host is trying to take care of this, but if unsuccessful, they
will station someone on the 1st floor near the elevator bank and 5th
Avenue entrance to let people in. Worst case scenario, give the host a
call on his cell phone and he'll run down to let you in.
Our hosts are providing a generous assortment of free sodas, fruit
drinks, teas, and coffee, and also have some snacks. You definitely
won't dehydrate here.
See you there!
