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.
|24 November, 2004 - Birmingham.pm Technical Meeting|
|Time:||7pm - 9.30pm|
|Address:||1st Floor, Leonard House, 318-321 Bradford Street, Birmingham B5 6ET|
|Details:||A selection of talks regarding Perl and related subjects. Entry is free, and newcomers are welcome. Apres meeting debrief at The Old Fox on Hurst Street. See our meetings page for further details.|
|Richard Dawe - Writing Filesystems in Perl|
A filesystem using FUSE (Filesystems in User Space) for Linux.
The talk will include a live demo.
Notes: The Fedora rpms are: fuse & fuse-devel, which are the libraries and development packages; kernel_fuse, which is a DKMS-based package for the kernel module. DKMS will automatically rebuild the fuse module, the first time you boot a new kernel. See here for details of using my yum repository. If you want to use xmlfs, you may need to rebuild the Fuse Perl module with the patch in the xmlfs directory. The patch adds support for extended attributes, although I'm not sure it works properly yet. ;) xmlfs may work fine with the vanilla module from CPAN, but I haven't tested that.
|Jon Mitchell - The Perl Spectrum Emulator|
A longer look at Jon's project, which he previewed in his lightning talk in Belfast last year.
|Barbie - From Module To Distribution|
A brief look at how to create a distribution. What to include, what to automate and how to release it.
|Jon Brookes - Perlish Pattern Matching|
Two lightning talks about pattern matching in Perl

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.
For information on The Question Group and The Questions Publishing Company please click the image links in the company logo on the left. Further company related links are listed below.
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.
