Just a reminder that the February Perlmongers meeting will be held on
the 9th of February 2011 - ie. Tomorrow!
It will be held at:
51-55 Johnston Street
(This is above the Tenant's Union - enter the door, go up two flights of
Jacinta Richardson will be giving a talk, described at LCA as:
As with many programming languages, it's very easy to find Perl
code that can best be described as "write only". Cute tricks, short
variable names, inconsistent spacing, dubious reliance on default
arguments... Even without the added challenge of a whole extra
embedded language (regular expressions), some Perl programs deserve
to be referred to as line-noise.
Yet Perl is a beautiful, expressive language that can be used
successfully by novices through to experts to achieve powerful
results; and, with a little extra preparation can be easy to read,
fun to work with, and a joy to maintain.
This talk will provide a lightning tour of the current status of
Perl's best practices.
Lightning talks will follow, and no doubt some of us will retire to the
Standard Hotel on Fitzroy Street afterwards.
