Technical Meetings

The technical meetings are a monthly event, that aims to provide the Birmingham Perl community with an educational night of talks. If you wish to attend, please feel free to come along and listen in.

Talks Wanted: If you would like to do a talk, whether a 5 minute lightning talk, a 15 minutes talk or longer, please let us know and we'll add you to the schedule. If we are unable to add you to the schedule for the next meeting, we will give you priority at a future meeting.

Guest Speakers: Are you visiting Birmingham at some point in the future, and would be willing to give a talk? Or are you based outside of the West Midlands, but would be willing to make a trek over to see us and present a talk? If so, then I'd love to hear from you. Drop me an email with details of when you are in Birmingham and the talk you would like to present. I'll then arrange a schedule and confirm.

The Talks

Steve Pitchford - Ban The Bog Troll (Lightning Talk)


Steve talks about his experiences of using inexpensive tools available on the internet to develop a campaign strategy for his scheme to regulate the staffing of lavatories in pubs and clubs, and develops it further to explore the similarities in legislation and coding. It is anticipated that this will generate stimulating debate about the use of the internet in the political arena and legislation as relevant to the IT industry.

Presented in Steve's almost unique idium.
