Hi All,

The first meeting of 2009 will be held at Sophos on 12th February at 7pm.

There are currently 3 talks lined up:

* Scott McWhirter - "Perl, mongers and more"
    Quick talk about what's new and interesting in the perl world. Quick Q&A
session about perl mongers.

* Luke Closs - "Git backed up"
    Using git, Perl and OCaml to develop a backup solution.

    I have someone lined up, but just waiting on confirmation. Will send
another mail when confirmed.

If anyone has a quick 10-20 minute talk they would like to do, please feel
free to let me know.

Sophos have graciously offered space for our meeting. Their office is at 580
Granville Street in downtown Vancouver (Google map: http://xrl.us/beco9t).
If people can let me know if they are coming I can let Sophos know how much
space we require.
