Thanks to Dr Jaime Prilusky we are going to have a fixed place for monthly
meetings in the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot.
As this is not in the area where the Israel.pm people used to meet I think the
best is to consider this the meetings of Rehovot.pm and keep searching
for a place in Tel Aviv+ area for the other group.
The Rehovot.pm group is a generic Perl Monger group but I see two main areas
where this group could be especially active. One of them is PDL (a
the other is Bioperl.
Objective: Build a community of people using Perl to help each other,
learn new subjects
and develop open source software.
Date: Tuesday November 17, 2009 from 18:00-22:00
Location: Room 101 in the Levine Building (number 30 on the map at
The Weizmann Institute is a few minutes walk from the Rehovot
train station, shown in the maps.
Content: I'd like to have a short presentation about Matlab and about PDL and
how it relates to Matlab. (Up to 1 hour)
Then I'd like to have 2-3 hours of pair-programming and
writing. The idea is that I'd like to create documents
and sample scripts
for people who know Matlab and would like to learn how
to use PDL.
So I am looking for people who would like to give a short presentation
on either subject!
I think both Matlab users without Perl experience and
Perl programmers without
Matlab experience will be able to learn and contribute.
Fee: Entrance is free of charge.
RSVP: If you are planning to come to the meeting please send me an
e-mail so I'll
have a rough estimate of the number of people.
PR: Please forward this message to people in companies and
institutes that could be interested
Question: if you have any questions, please ask it on the mailing list.
