From: James E Keenan
Subject: Perl Seminar NY This Tuesday May 20
To: perlsemny@yahoogroups.com, ny@lists.pm.org

We'll have our final meeting of our 2007-08 season in 3 parts as
follows:

Tuesday May 20
6:15 pm
NYPC User Group
481 8th Avenue, Suite 550
(Ramada New Yorker Hotel, btw West 34 & 35 Sts, Manhattan)

Agenda:
I. Debunking Myths about Perl

This talk aims to give Perl users some ammunition to debunk some of
the myths about Perl:
* hard to read
* hard to test
* hard to find programmers
* no jobs available
* dead

*We* know these are myths, but it's helpful to practice the arguments
needed to refute them. We'll be channeling Steve Lembark and Tim
Bunce on this one.

II. Lightning Talks

So far we have these 5-minute talks scheduled:

David Golden: The Oslo Accords on Perl QA and Testing
David Golden: Current Status of Vanilla/Strawberry Perl
Glenn Maciag: Regex Stump the Chumps
Arthur Goldstein: Parse::Stallion
Morrie Siegel: Recursive Regexes in Perl 5.10


III. And since this is our last meeting of the season, we'll adjourn
afterwards to Stout on West 33 St between 6th and 7th Avenues to
celebrate Perl's continued (20+ years) life.
