Tuesday, November 15, is the next meeting of the THE SEATTLE PERL USERS GROUP.
This Month's Talk
Acmeism (http://acmeism.org) is the ability to think about and express
one's creative ideas, beyond language borders. In programming, this means
creating things that benefit multiple languages and communities. Perl is
effectively one great community with 2 great languages (Perl 5 and Perl 6).
Acmeism is essential to mongers, but kindly extends to pythonistas, brigadiers
and nodelings as well.
Pegex is an Acmeist parsing language. Think of it as Perl 6 Rules and
Regexp::Grammars for all programmers. Write One Grammar, Parse Everywhere. This
makes Pegex the quintessential tool in the Acmeist's belt. Pegex.pm is fully
functional in Perl 5, and working it's way across the Acmeist landscape.

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!
