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.

|Steve Pitchford - Web scale full stack software engineering - a rant through dev-space and time|
The advent of node.js has sheparded in a new generation of web developers, rebranded as "full stack software engineers". By leveraging the cloud, and no-sql technologies, "full stack software engineers" seek to single handedly develop "web scale" software applications. I will look at similarities between node.js "full stack" software engineers, and "LAMP stack php web developers", and consider the underlying causes of what appears to be a cyclic pattern of inexperienced developers failing to appreciatte scaling factors in software development.
