Our next meeting is Tuesday October 25 at 7pm at Citizen Space.


Acmeism (http://acmeism.org) is the ability to think about and express
one's creative ideas, beyond language borders. In programming, this
means creating things that benefit multiple languages and communities.
Perl is effectively one great community with 2 great languages (Perl 5
and Perl 6). Acmeism is essential to mongers, but kindly extends to
pythonistas, brigadiers and nodelings as well.

Pegex is an Acmeist parsing language. Think of it as Perl 6 Rules and
Regexp::Grammars for all programmers. Write One Grammar, Parse
Everywhere. This makes Pegex the quintessential tool in the Acmeist's
belt. Pegex.pm is fully functional in Perl 5, and working it's way
across the Acmeist landscape.

Come see Ingy döt Net (an inventor of YAML and the father of Acmeism)
talk about Pegex and the exciting future of Acmeism.
