About David Ihnen
David Ihnen has over ten years experience with progressively more
object-oriented Perl programming. He learned DBIx::Class for the interview
questions for a job in Flagstaff, Arizona at a urine analysis lab where he
helped build a web-based lab result management system for use by their
clients. Now he is back in Seattle at Amazon (for the third time), where
he builds test frameworks and untangles the vagaries of complex financial
perl scripts. He currently lives in Issaquah with his 15-year partner,
Dhugal, and two german shepherd dogs, Akando and Banshee.
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 6:19 pm.
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!
