Re: [Philadelphia-pm] technical night?

Oh! I vote for the "Secrets of the Dead" talk.
Sounds great. 

I excised COBOL from my resume years ago - but still have qualified respect for the language.

That's the same night as PLUG North, but I suppose I could miss it
next month.

Thanks for volunteering a place to meet!

I've got 2 potential talks I could do.  One is on what's new in Perl 5
since roughly 5.10.  It's basically a summary of a series of excellent
talks that rjbs gave every year at yapc while he was pumpking. I gave
it last year at Fosscon to an audience of about 5 people, and to a
larger audience at PLUG Central in April.

The other talk is called "Secrets of the Dead: What Modern Programmers
Can Learn from COBOL".  I gave it as a 20 minute talk at this year's
yapc, but it ended up being a bit too long.  I'll be giving it again
as a 50 minute talk at this year's Fosscon on August 20, and it might
be nice to have a chance to practice the new parts.
