                   Chicago Perl Mongers Meeting Announcement
       Topic: Make Your Own CPAN
   Presenter: brian d foy
   Date/Time: Tuesday, October 23rd, 2007, 7:00 PM
    Location: Performics, 12th Floor, 180 N. LaSalle, Chicago, IL
        RSVP: By noon on Oct. 23rd to "pkrawczyk" with "doubleclick.com"

Want your own CPAN? Need to add your own modules, take out other modules, 
start from scratch, or put it on a CD? With a little bit of knowledge 
about how CPAN works you can easily make your own archive that works with 
the standard CPAN tools. Want to go home with your own copy of CPAN? Bring 
a 1 G thumb drive and we'll make you a copy as you wait.

brian will also be bringing a big pile of random books with him. That pile 
includes several recent promotional copies as well as things he doesn't 
want on his shelf anymore. Why not bring your unwanted books, too?  We'll 
have a book swap. Give a book, take a book.

And, for those that want first crack at the books, give a lightning talk. 
You don't need slides or anything fancy. Just get up and talk for 3 to 5 
minutes about something you're doing with Perl or that happened in your 
Perl development since the last meeting. It's a great way to get used to 
talking about a technical topic in front of a friendly audience. brian 
will give everyone who gives a lightning talk a free copy of the current 
issue of The Perl Review, which currently has a long article on his talk 

Don't forget that everyone is invited to Monks for drinks and food
after the meeting. Anyone who shows up at Monks for their first time
gets a free drink on brian. :)

As with all Chicago Perl Mongers meetings, everyone is welcome,
whether or not you consider yourself a member. We look forward to
seeing you there!
