In the future I hope to have some floating meetings so everyone will be happy (or un-happy?) some of the time. But that is the topic of discussion for the meeting, so I digress :)

Meeting Follow-up: We had a lovely meeting yesterday, with 10 people enjoying dinner and perl-talk at Nello's Pizza. In addition to random perl-related conversation, Mike Friedman spoke of HighWire Press [1] and their use of Perl, and Scott Walters told us about how he does web-scraping (and he will post code soon we hope :) ).




We'll be having a Phoenix.pm meeting Thursday, 6 May at 7:00PM. It will be held at Bowne, which is located at 1500 N. Central Avenue, which is on the Southwest corner of Central and McDowell. The parking lot is gated, so just press the button on the intercom, and tell the receptionist that you are there for the Perl meeting. Park in the lot that is straight ahead from the entrance on the South side of McDowell. Park in any uncovered, non-reserved space. Proceed to the main lobby, which is on the Northeast side of the parking lot.

Scott will be talking about Perl 6 features available for Perl 5. Tim or I might also present, or we'll just hang out.

Scott writes:

"Perl 6 features available for Perl 5" includes, this time:

  • Perl6::Variables, again
  • Pointy Subroutines
  • zip
  • Currying
  • Perhaps other things as I revise this

    Holiday Party social meeting!

    We'll be having a "geek" white elephant gift exchange. Bring any hardware/computer paraphernalia (working or not) you'd like to unload on some hapless victim. Please wrap the gift (or at least put it in a box) to increase the suspense. If you don't want to participate, you don't have to. You just won't get to take home any new useless^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H cool stuff. If you are so inclined, feel free to bring a snack. I'll bring some cookies. - Doug




    We'll be having a Phoenix.pm meeting Thursday, September 18th at 7:00PM. It will be held at Bowne, which is located at 1500 N.

    Scott Walters will be doing the typesafety.pm presentation again, this time with a code walk through and demo of the code working (or not working, depending on the phase of the moon).




    We'll be having a Phoenix.pm meeting Thursday, September 4th at 7:00PM.

    DougMiles will be presenting "Exploring the WxWindows XRC". Scott might also be presenting something if there is time, and he can make it. Links from the presentation are in WxWindows.

    Yes, ScottWalters will be going, and presenting his TypeSafety, er, hack.




    Scott Walters will be presenting the first part in a three part series on his FuzzyLogic module: Theory of Fuzzy Logic, a proposed CPAN module implementing it via overloaded operators. An example will be presented that performs fuzzy classification.

    The "slides" are at http://perldesignpatterns.com/?FuzzyLogic and the code is at http://www.slowass.net/~phaedrus/geekdate.fuzzylogic.tgz . This includes AI::FuzzyLogic , which has yet to be uploaded to CPAN - pending user feedback and better POD.




    We'll be having a Phoenix.pm meeting Thursday, Febuary 20th at 7:00PM. Yes, this is tomorrow - sorry for the short notice.

    We'll have a series of short presentations:

    Kurt will present use of Win32::OLE to generate and read Excel spreadsheets. Doug will talk about tunneling data over ssh using Perl. Scott will talk about perhaps the number one security problem with Perl scripts, command injection vulnerabilities.

    Having trouble with some code or just want peer review? Bring it.




    July 17, at 7:00PM, at Bowne, is part two in the Fuzzy Logic series, with a control application example.

    Update: The latest copy of the yet-to-hit-CPAN AI::FuzzyLogic module, and the demonstration application which caused DougMiles to label this meeting as "the most memerable PerlMongers meeting yet", are on the web at http://www.slowass.net/~phaedrus/toilet.fuzzylogic.tgz . The notes are at http://perldesignpatterns.com/?FuzzyLogic . An MP3 audio recording of the lecture is at http://www.slowass.net/~phaedrus/ppm.fuz2.mp3 . The recording will make sense if and only if you follow the notes.

    We'll have a Phoenix.pm meeting Thursday, June 5th, at 7:00PM.
