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.

|Barbie - World Tour - May/June Update|
An update to the world tour for May and June.
|Barbie - Assuring Quality|
This talk will be an introduction to Perl and CPAN testing. A quick guided tour taking in CPAN Testers, CPAN::YACSmoke and the CPAN testing statistics. Many companies need to have confidence in the quality of the software they use, particularly for third party software. Perl and CPAN testing help to promote Perl as a language of choice for providing the tools and environment by default.
A preview of my YAPC::NA talk
|Jon Allen - Excel on the Command Line|
Perl 'one-liners' are a great way to quickly search and manipulate data without writing a full blown script, but they only work if your data is in plain text.
This talk will show how to extend the 'one-liner' concept to process Microsoft Excel documents just as easily as a text file.
