This month, we have a special meeting: brian d foy () will be giving a talk about Perl 6 Grammars on Thursday, February 16. Grammars in Perl 6 are the evolved form of Perl 5 regular expressions that allow even more power and flexibility, while still being easier to use. RSVP for this special talk about Perl 6 Grammars on the Chicago.PM Meetup.
For our regular meeting, Doug Bell (preaction) () will
be giving a talk about Logging for Programs Tiny and
Large. It will
cover various ways to add logging and reporting to your Perl programs,
including built-ins like
warn, core modules like
Sys::Syslog, and CPAN modules
Log::Log4perl. RSVP for the
talk about Logging in Perl 5 on the Chicago.PM
We also need speakers for March and further on the rest of the year. If you're interested in talking for 20 minutes or 40 minutes about any topic at least tangentially related to developing software with Perl, e-mail me or sign-up on our spreadsheet. If you'd like to contribute, but don't know what to talk about, check out our list of talk ideas.
