Birmingham.pm Technical Meeting - Wed 23rd September

[ #39653 ]
Event:   Technical Meeting
Date:    Wednesday 23rd September 2009
Times:   from 7pm onwards (see below)
Venue:   The Victoria, 48 John Bright Street, Birmingham, B1 1BN
Details: http://birmingham.pm.org/tech/next

Talks:

  • Python Web Trends [Stuart Langridge]
  • Silverlight and Expression Studio [Nick Harewood]
  • Web Mashups with Catalyst [Jon Allen (JJ)]

Details

This month we're lucky to have two special guest speakers; Nick Harewood and Stuart Langridge.

They'll be taking us beyond the realms of Perl, with Stuart talking about the latest web trends in the Python community, and Nick taking us through Microsoft Silverlight and Expression Studio. This will be a great opportunity to find out what's happening in other languages. In addition, JJ will be flying the Perl flag, with a talk about building web mashups with Perl and Catalyst.

As per usual, this month's technical meeting will be upstairs at The Victoria. The pub is on the corner of John Bright Street and Beak Street, between the old entrance to the Alexandra Theatre and the backstage entrance. If in doubt, the main entrance to the Theatre is on the inner ring road, near the Pagoda roundabout. The pub is on the road immediately behind the main entrance. See the map link on the website if you're stuck.

As always entry is free, with no knowledge of Perl required. We'd be delighted to have you along, so feel free to invite family, friends and colleagues ;)

Some of us should be at the venue from about 6.00pm, usually in the backroom downstairs. Order food as you get there, and we'll aim to begin talks at about 8pm. Talks usually finish by 9.30pm, with plenty of time for discussion in the bar downstairs afterwards.
