This coming Tuesday, October 16th, is the next meeting of the THE SEATTLE

This month, Gryphon Shafer will present a talk entitled "Integrating 3rd-
Party Web Apps with mod_perl2 Filters"

Learn how to use mod_perl2 input and output filters to more easily
integrate 3rd-party web applications without having to touch source
code. Write simple filters and stack them so similar functional needs
across several applications can share filters, allowing for more code
reuse. Use filters to integrate different 3rd-party authentication
mechanisms into one site-wide system. Learn why beer is good for you.

Gryphon Shafer is the Director of Technology for Petfinder, part of
Animal Planet, Discovery Communications. He leads his department as a
fully-telecommute organization spread across the country and works out
of his home in Port Orchard.

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.

Meeting Location

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[1] 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[2] 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!
