Tuesday, July 19, is the next meeting of the THE SEATTLE PERL USERS GROUP.

This Month's Talk


Introducing two new modules Log::Lager and Data::Abridge.

Data::Abridge takes complex Perl data structures and strips them down for
easy serialization.
Log::Lager - logging rethought, rehashed and restructured.  It was written
to support Log::Lager.

Log::Lager is built on these principles:
   * logging should be easy to add to code
   * logs should be easy to process programmatically
   * logging should be configurable in a running program
   * logging should be configurable over any subset of a program

GASP at the amazing design decisions that came from these four principles!
SCREAM with frustration when you realize how much time you've wasted
configuring complicated log objects!
THRILL with pleasure when you see how easy logging can be.

About Mark Swayne

Mark Swayne has been programming Perl for a bit over a decade.  He likes it
a lot, far more than he likes writing about himself in the third person.  He
is known primarily for having memorized more Tom Lehrer lyrics than can
possibly be heathy.


If you are so inclined, please come to the pre-meeting at the nearby
& 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
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.

See you there!
