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.

|Colin Newell - Creating a basic CPAN mirror/inject server using the Salt stack|
A more sysadmin talk, with a bit of YAML for good measure.
|Barbie - Testing Traps and Effects|
An introduction to Test::Trap, and the recently written wrapper Test::Effects.
Handling exit, die and other signal terminations in your code can be tricky. In some cases you might want to force an error and see that it fails as you expect. In other cases you may want to run code and ensure no unintended side effects occur. These two test modules help with that and are a handy addition to your test suite.
