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

Richard Wallman * - Adding Plugins and User-Contributed Content with Inline:: and friends

Abstract:

Users have become more demanding of the systems they work with, and power users more so - the ability to script and extend things is rapidly becoming a prerequisite. Integrating plugins and other user-contributed content into a system can introduce security and stability problems. Thankfully, the Inline and other distributions allows you to create safe, dynamic environments for external code to be executed in - even in different programming languages!

Jon Allen - Special Preview

Abstract:

This is a talk rehearsal for JJ, which he'll be presenting to students at Birmingham University as part of their course regarding programming in the real world. JJ will be promoting Perl.
