I mentioned a few weeks back that Damian was coming to Toronto to deliver
his latest high-energy talk. I've got the details on that sorted out now.
Presenter: Dr. Damian Conway, the Mad Scientist of Perl
Talk Title: The Missing Link
Details: What do watching trees grow, debugging debuggers,
Greek mythology, code that writes code that writes code
that writes code, the hazards of LaTeX, successful failures,
the treacherous Vorta, objective syntax, anti-stacks,
Danish mind-control, active null statements, synthetic standup,
and the prospect of certain death all have in common?
Watch as Damian weaves them together into a new and improbably
useful module that demonstrates the awesome power and beauty
of Perl 5.10.
Date: Monday 27 July 2009
Time: 7pm - 9pm

Looks like there is an underground lot directly beneath
Bahen Centre (marker #17). I also find it convenient to
park on King's College Circle (marker #13).

walk south approx. 7 minutes

or Queen's Park Stn (but walking may be faster than waiting
for a car, especially if you're at Queen's Park Stn)
Hope to see you there!
