this is a reminder that the meeting will take place on 18:30 on Wednesday
(23-Oct-2013) this week:
The Tel Aviv Perl Mongers ( http://telaviv.pm.org/ ) will hold their next
meeting on Wednesday, 23 October 2013, starting at 18:30 in the evening in
Shenkar College, room 247 (previously known as room 407) in the building in
Anna Frank St. in Ramat Gan.
On the Agenda:
18:30 - 19:00 : Get Together.
19:00 - 19:35 : Erez Schatz - How to Welcome Strangers to Perl
Perl and its subsets and extensions have a very unfriendly to
outsiders reputation. Part of it is intentional, but other arrives from
cultural and personal differences between many in the current communities
and those who wish to learn, or get answers and support in Perl, Perl 5,
Modern Perl 5, and the CPAN and its main Projects. I will attempt to map
some of these relations in an attempt that bridge the two sides.
19:35 - 19:45 : Break.
19:45 - 20:30 : Issac Goldstand - Distributed Apps with Gearman.
Gearman is a framework for writing distributed applications across many
nodes. It allows you to do work in parallel, load balance processes and
write applications across several programming languages. In this
presentation we'll learn how to get started writing Gearman-powered
applications in Perl.
20:30 - ... : after-party in a café or a restaurant.
Attendance is free-of-charge and everyone are welcome.
