Tuesday, June 15, is the next meeting of the THE SEATTLE PERL USERS GROUP.

This Month's Talk

Ingy will give a talk about:

 * Acmeism[1] - Programming above programming languages
 * C'Dent[2]  - A portable module programming language
 * Stardoc[3] - An Acmeist documentation system
 * TestML[4]  - An Acmeist unit test language

Imagine writing a Perl module, and then uploading it to RubyGems and PyPi
and a dozen other language repositories as a native module for that
language. C'Dent compiles modules Perl, Python, Ruby and JavaScript
modules to many languages. Stardoc reformats POD to many other formats.
TestML lets you write one set of tests that all the compiled modules must
pass before shipping.

This is the future. This is Acmeism.

About Ingy dot Net

Ingy is a Perl, JavaScript and Python module author (so far). Ingy is an
Acmeist. He believes that programming languages act as barriers to hacker
collaboration, but great hackers push their ideas over the language walls.


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.

Meeting Location

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.
