About Josh ben Jore
Josh ben Jore is a crab wranger according to the internet or a serial
presenter at YAPC::NA or a senior engineer at WhitePages.com. He came to
Perl because he had to write a CGI appfor a political campaign and he'd
heard that Perl was best for that sort of thing. Since then, he's been
slacking off by writing or maintaining several dozen CPAN modules. His
latest perl-fu has been to shrink the memory usage of some honking big
in-memory databases and separately, helping get perl-5.12.0 out the door.
If you are so inclined, please come to the pre-meeting at the nearby
Elephant & Castle pub on 5th & Union (see map link below). Come enjoy some
friendly conversation and perhaps a favorite beverage (they have a full
restaurant too). We can usually be found at the back under the TV near the
rear entrance that goes up into the hotel (if you enter through the front
doors, just go straight back past the bar). We'll be there from 5:00 pm to
520 Pike Street, Suite 1800
Seattle, WA 98101
The building is just East of Westlake Center. Enter from Pike Street.
Due to all of the shopping around us there is plenty of parking available
in garages, but it can be hard to find street parking in the evening.
There is also a parking garage in the building, but check the rates and
closing time (subject to change due to downtown events)!
Attendees will need to wait near the elevators in the lobby and a Marchex
employee will provide access to the 18th floor where the meeting room is
located. If no one shows up to let you in, call (425) 533-2964 to let them
know you're in the lobby.
See you there!
Andrew B. Sweger -- The great thing about multitasking is that several
things can go wrong at once.
