Milton Keynes Perl Mongers will hold our third technical meeting of
2009 on Tuesday 14th July at the Open University's Systems Seminar
Room.  Arrive at 7pm so the first talk can start promptly at 7.15.

This meeting is open to regular group members, newcomers and anyone else
who would like to listen to the talks.  We have a loose database theme
this month, as well as the usual varied talks about Perl and software

Please invite anyone who you think might have an interest.  If you've
never been before, come along.

We have the following talks lined up:

Colin Bradford will tell us about Data Warehousing with Perl: archiving
and analysing large data sets from a popular online business.

Oliver Gorwits will explain how to use local::lib to let users manage
modules without needing root access to machines.

Matt Trout will talk about the future of DBIx::Class, a database object
relational mapper for Perl.

We have a few five minute lightning talks too:

Ian Cameron will tell us about his adventures with WWW::Mechanize.  Tony
Edwardson will tell us how to managed database queries with SQL::Library
and Tom Hukins will share his thoughts on code, comments and commit

Finally, remember to arrive at the OU for 7pm on Tuesday 14th July.
Here's how to find us:
 First, find the OU campus as described at

 Enter the campus (signposted Open University, not Open University East),
 via Brickhill Street (V10).

 Take the middle lane past Security (on the left), through the barriers, and
 then turn right on to Ring Road East.

 Ahead you will see the road narrows to single lane on your side of the
 road, where there are no entry signs.  Just prior to this is the
 entrance to a car park on the left (marked Inner East Parking on the
 campus map).  Take this left turn and head to the top left (North West
 on the campus map) of the car park.

 The meeting is in the south east section of the Venables Building,
 nearest the Inner East Parking on the campus map.

 Take the path (marked in orange on the campus map) west from the car park
 toward the centre of campus.

 Take a right under an archway in to the courtyard area bound by Venables
 South, East, and South East, keeping right (heading North East on the campus
 map), behind the building section marked South East.

 You will find a double door on your right, which is Entrance G at the
 South East section of Venables Building.

 We'll see you there, as these are usually access controlled doors, so you
 will probably need to be let in.

If you haven't attended one of our meetings at the OU before, you might
want to ask for someone's phone number in case you have trouble finding
us.  If you need a lift to the meeting, please ask our mailing list or
IRC channel (see for details).

See you on the 14th,
