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

Brian McCauley - Perl Golf


Brian won the Perl Golf competition at YAPC::Europe 2013 in Kiev. In this talk he elborates on the submission, and looks how it could have been improved further.

Barbie - A Beginner's Guide To PSGI


PSGI, Plack and Starman all the flavour of the moment. Several Perl web frameworks have already added support for PSGI, and now Labyrinth has also added Labyrinth::PSGI to its portfolio. This talk gives a brief introduction to PSGI, Plack and Starman, together with a few rough guides to implementing a PSGI application using Labyrinth.
