Why the Renaissance in Perl?

Topic: Why the Renaissance in Perl?

Speaker:  Bruce Gray
Util on IRC and PerlMonks
Atlanta, GA

"What's new in Perl" falls broadly into two categories:
* Perl 6 (all the cool new bits)
* The Renaissance of Perl 5.

Bruce Gray has been part of the Perl 6 and Parrot development
teams for over 10 years,

The Perl 5 Renaissance is timely and relevant today.  Bring your
questions and prepare for a lively evening.

Prior to the meeting, there will be an informal, non-structured
"guru" session open to anyone wishing to attend.  This will start
around 6:45pm in the meeting room, and we will have one or more gu-
rus available to discuss whatever topics/problems/questions the at-
tendees care to bring up.
For those who need some sustenance before the meeting, you will
find kindred
AUUG spirits at "Applebee's" restaurant, 130 Perimeter
Center Place (corner of Meadow Lane Rd, next to Loehman's) just 1/2
block from the meeting place.  Drop in any time after 5:30pm to sit
around and chew the fat and indulge in some of their fine cuisine.
This is a chance for folks to get together and exchange rumors,
ideas, assistance, etc.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
