kmccombs writes "June's MadMongers meeting features a series of four lightning talks, three of which are to be presented by Plain Black staffers. These talks will pack a large amount of knowledge condensed into one session, so be prepared to take notes and walk out with some new ideas.

Presentation topics include:

  • Inside-Out Objects: Graham Knop will cover implementation of inside-out objects and point out ways to increase speed and flexibility while maintaining and supporting objects between threads.
  • Writing Network Daemons: JT Smith will discuss writing network daemons and the potential pitfalls associated with user and programmer errors, multiple instances of a daemon running on one server, and the tricks associated with multithreading daemons to enable them to handle several requests at once. JT will provide expert advice for handling all these issues and demonstrate his professional approach to writing effective network daemons.
  • Net::LDAP: Frank Dillon will discuss using Net::LDAP to connect to, retrieve, and write data to an LDAP repository. Net::LDAP is a collection of modules that implements a LDAP services API for Perl programs. The module may be used to search directories or perform maintenance functions such as adding, deleting or modifying entries.
  • Regular Expressions: Steve Peters will cover the regular expression changes that are coming with Perl 5.10. In this release the regular expression engine has been restructured and includes many new features. Steve will discuss these changes along with the additional functionality they provide.

MadMongers is the Madison, WI chapter of Perl Mongers, and encourages anyone interested in Perl to attend.
When: Thursday, June 14
Time: 7:00-9:00pm CDT
Place: Madison Public Library"
