Hi Mongers,

A few notes from Wednesday's meeting:

- Simple Perl databases were discussed. What's the best way to implement 
a very simple database with Perl? MySQL and PostgreSQL were recommended, 
as was Alzabo, an OO data-modelling tool.

- Yes, we are still selling TPC5 t-shirts. Does anyone remember the URL 
for the CafePress store? Is anyone eager to start designs for TPC6? :)

- Bob has some Perl books to give away at the next meeting, courtesy of 
San Diego Technical Books. Unfortunately, one of them is "Perl for the 
Web". There is no escape.

- Console ( is hiring Perl developers with SQL 
and Apache experience. They're also looking for a system administrator. 
Ruby Wong or Chuck Phillips will post details to the list.

- SOAP is good. I like Web services. I can babble endlessly about them. :)

- Those wishing to try a Web services demo can go to:
If you brave the marketing speak (or click ahead to "Try it") you can 
create and use real Web services on VelociGen's nickel.

- The meeting location is changing. See the Web site 
( for details.
