Welcome Perlmongers, Perl hackers and Perl aficionados in New York City and within driving distance!
Perl Seminar NY holds its first meeting of the 2004-05 season next Tuesday, the 3rd Tuesday of the month. For last-minute changes, please consult our list at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/perlsemny (and join our group!).
*Location & Time*: NYPC Users Group office suite 481 8 Ave (Ramada New Yorker Hotel) Suite 1560 between West 34 & 35 Sts, Manhattan Tuesday, October 19, 6:15-8:15 pm
Alex Gill and Friends: "YAPC Roundup." Perl Seminar NY was well represented at Yet Another Perl Conference/2004 in Buffalo in June -- both in attendance and among the speakers. Alex and other attendees will share their impressions. Anyone who attended OSCON is welcome to speak here as well.
Jon Meek: "An Introduction to Network Monitoring and Measurement with Perl." Jon hacks with the Linux service monitoring daemon known as 'mon' (http://www.kernel.org/software/mon/). He'll give us a taste of how he uses Perl to analyze network monitoring data.
Jim Keenan: "Projects for Perlsemny." Over the summer, several of our members began to discuss ways in which we can collaborate on programming and self-teaching projects between our monthly meetings. Jim will describe two such projects: "Using Perl 6 in Perl 5" and "Phalanx," the CPAN QA project initiated by Andy Lester of Chicago.pm.
Steven Lembark: "Setting Up a Sandbox with FindBin::libs." The FindBin module is distributed with the Perl core and Steve has extended its functionality with his CPAN module FindBin::libs (http://search.cpan.org/~lembark/FindBin-libs-1.01/lib/FindBin/ libs.pm). He will explain how it enables you to locate "lib" directories to use and set up sandboxes with local copies of Perl libraries.
