The next meeting of the Detroit Perl Mongers / Dynamic Languages group
will be at 7pm on February 19th 2008.

This month Bill Hess will be presenting on dynamic web application
development using Meteor.

What is Meteor (from http://meteorserver.org/)

Meteor is an HTTP server which gives developers the freedom to think
about web development in an entirely new way. It comprises the Meteor
server and a standalone Javascript class which can be used in web pages
to provide an abstraction layer for receiving data streams. Designed to
be as simple and flexible as possible, Meteor offers a great solution
for those wishing to add asynchronous functionality to their web

The presentation will include an introduction to this technology which
is dubbed "Comet"  which is related to "AJAX" - both are names of
popular scrubbing powders - get it?   A live working example will also
be presented and the steps on how it was implemented.
