This month was YAPC, and a lot of excellent presentations are available on YouTube. We'll get some reactions from those who participated in YAPC either in-person or remotely, then we'll talk about some of the latest news in the Perl world.
Join other Perl programmers in Chicago for technical assistance, social and business networking, job opportunities, and more. You can be a complete beginner all the way to an expert, and open source zealot or not. We welcome people of all types. Most meetings have a structured component followed by dinner and drinks. You can participate as much or as little as you like.
