This month's Perl Mongers meeting will be held at House of Louie, in the
back, in the banquet room. Please support our local business by ordering
some food or drink! If this proves to be a good venue, we'd like to be
welcomed back with open arms.

t-shirts for sale ($9.99 + $0.01 S/H)

Next, chromatic talks about Mail::SimpleList:

    You've used Perl at work. You've programmed for other people before.
    How do you take a project from idea to execution? How can you add
    new features to your own projects without going crazy?

    Mail::SimpleList is a simple-but-effective project written in
    Perl. chromatic will demonstrate how he wrote it, from ideas to
    design to tests to implementation and explaining how
    Mail::SimpleList works, why he made the design choices he did and
    what he learned all along the way.

    chromatic will touch on mail filtering, object orientation,
    test-driven development, customer testing, deployment, refactoring
    and the normal ups and downs of any type of software development.

See you there!
