Birmingham.pm World Tour 2008 - Coventry LUG - 19th February 2008
The 2008 World Tour continues with momentum. Following a succesful visit to Leicester, Birmingham Perl Mongers hit the other end of the M69 with a visit to Coventry LUG. This will be another technical meeting, with Barbie again presenting his Understanding Malware talk. More goodies to give away thanks to MessageLabs' 'Know Your Enemy' campaign.
The event will take place at Coventry University, in the Hillman/Humber Lecture Theatres. Coventry LUG have a meetings page with further details and a link to an interactive map of the campus (building number 5 on the map). The talk is expected to begin between 7.30pm and 8pm, with an expected debrief session afterwards from about 9.30pm.
Feel free to come along and support and/or heckle.

In early 2006 Birmingham Perl Mongers took to the road to promote the 2006 YAPC::Europe Perl Conference, which we hosted at the end of August 2006. We took it upon ourselves to visit several Perl Monger groups around the UK, and proved extremely popular, with several groups asked to come back again, and others asking us to visit them too. In 2007 we visited both Perl Monger and Linux user groups, this time presenting at each groups technical meeting. For 2008 we hope to include several groups we never previous got to as well visiting some old friends.
