Wow, these first Mondays come up awfully quickly, don't they? We're
due for a meeting on Monday. Since I don't believe we have any other
volunteers, I'm going to volunteer to do something.
This morning I gave a talk to some Mac weenies called "Pimp Your Mac
With Perl". It was basically a repackaged version of Mark Fowler's
talk which you can find on his excellent website
http://www.pimpyourmacwithperl.com/ . But whereas Mark covered about
two dozen things in 20 minutes, I talked for an hour on just a few
things. I focused on how to use perl to:
* write your own services with ThisService
* respond to FSevents (the magic used by Spotlight and Time Machine)
* send Growl notifications
In a rarity for me, I did live demos of all these things. In even
more of a rarity, they all worked!
Does this sound interesting? The Mac folks seemed to like it, but,
you know, they're Mac folks.
