Milton Keynes Perl Mongers will hold our fourth and final technical
meeting of 2009 on Thursday 15th October 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.  If you can think of anyone who
might like to come, please invite them.

We have a Dave Cross double bill for two of our talks.  Dave will share
experiences, anecdotes and vague conclusions from teaching Perl.  Then
he will tell us how he manages to maintain so many CPAN modules:

Katherine Spice will talk about load balancing with Perlbal.

Tony Edwardson will talk about using Moose to build an object oriented
application, building on the talk he gave earlier this year.

We have a couple of Catalyst related five minute lightning talks too:

Benjamin Martin will describe his experience of Catalyst from a new
user's perspective.  Jon Allen will talk about his module for creating
thumbnail images with Catalyst

Finally, remember to arrive at the OU for 7pm on Thursday 15th 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 15th,
