Tonight I'll be the guest speaker at Coventry Linux Users Group. They've asked me to do an introduction to Perl and CPAN. I've dusted off and considerably updated the talk I gave to South Birmingham LUG a couple of years ago. It's been interesting to reread the talk as several things have changed in the last two years.
Originally I was going to do this talk for the folks in Coventry earlier in the year, when I was going to promote the YAPC::Europe conference a bit. Unfortunately they had to reschedule, so I've missed that opportunity, but I am still hoping I might be able to recruit one or two into Birmingham.pm. Afterall we're only a few miles down the A45
