Event: Technical Meeting
Date: Wednesday 18th October 2006
Times: from 7pm onwards (see below)
Venue: O'Neills, 90 Hurst Street, The Arcadian Centre, Birmingham
After a great turnout at our meeting last month, I hope we can continue the trend. This month we are honoured with two guest speakers. First fresh from his TPF presentation at YAPC::Europe, Curtis "Ovid" Poe will be talking about lexing. Also joining is a local LUG member, Alex Willmer, who will be talking about cool GPS things. Also featuring in his debut presentation is our very own Colin Newell, who will be presenting a lightning talk with his experiences of learning Perl.
The bundle of talks on offer this month are:
As always entry is free, no knowledge of Perl is required, and we'd be delighted to have you along. Feel free to invite family, friends and colleagues
These are the rough times for the evening:
Technical meetings are held at O'Neills on Hurst Street, by The Arcadian Centre. We will be in the main function room ("the band room" if you've ever been there at the weekend). It's approximately 5-10 minutes walk from New Street station, and only slightly longer from the city centre.

Hope to see you all there.
