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.
|22 August, 2007 - Birmingham.pm Technical Meeting|
|Time:||6.30pm onwards, talks at 8pm|

A selection of talks regarding Perl and related subjects. Entry is free, and newcomers are welcome. See our meetings page for further details.

|Mike Kemp * - Cleaning up with Ajax|
This talk covers off the basics of Ajax security (and other 'Web 2.0' concerns) and explores some attack vectors
|Brian McCauley - UseNet Gems|
Gems are small items of high value and/or great beauty typically found in a mass of worthless material. Usenet is the original global distributed discussion group network. Usenet, mailing lists and other online forums are a major part of the Perl social scene, providing an extensive free resource of expert (and not so expert) advice on a range of technical issues in and around Perl. This talk explores briefly some of the rules and pitfalls of social interaction in a technical discussion forum and then looks at some "Gems" where often seemingly simple questions have revealed surprising and/or fascinating things about Perl.
This is the talk Brian will be presenting in Vienna next week.
