Milton Keynes Perl Mongers held our first meeting of 2009 on Tuesday.
Most of the meeting consisted of lightning talks where the speakers told us how they have used Perl to solve problems at the BBC, the Open University, Lovefilm and various investment banks.
We also heard about how the new online shop Penny's Arcade relies on Perl.
I have linked to the the speakers' slides from our Web site, so please take a look if you're interested in online retail with Perl, specifying module versions with only, Chart::Gnuplot, memcached, creating PDF files with Catalyst or exceptions and Perl.
Please get in touch if you would like to present at one of our future meetings, or if you'd like to come along to watch the fun unfold.
