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.

|John Pinner * - A Free Software Payroll: Sense or Suicide?|
Clockwork Software Systems believe that free software will not 'take off' in business until core applications like payroll are available. We have developed a new payroll which will be released under the GPL. Many people think that this is commercial suicide. The talk will discuss the rationale behind the development of this product.
Slides not available
|Shevek * - A Computational Introduction To Security Systems|
Another insight into protection systems.
|Brian McCauley - Games::Fluxx - a work in progress|
The Fluxx card proved very popular at YAPC::Europe::2004 and a number of us thought it would be good if we could continue to play when we've all scattered to our own corners of the globe.
To this end I have embarked upon Games::Fluxx a module that encapsulates the state of a Fluxx game and could be used at the heart of an on-line implementation.
This talk will discuss the the development to date and outline the other components that will be needed before this can be a fully functional online Fluxx server. This is also a call-to-arms for Birmingham.pm as the project would be well suited to collaboration.

For the past two years, Birmingham Perl Mongers' technical meetings have been graciously supported by The Questions Media Group, who have supplied the meeting room and technical equipment free of charge. Without their support it is unlikely we would have presented the number of talks we have.

We are one of the UK's largest Perl user groups, representing Birmingham UK to the international Perl community since 2000. We hold monthly social and technical presentations, and several of our members are now regular attendees and speakers at the YAPC::Europe Perl Conferences.
