Throughout 2014 we are going to set a monthly theme instead of choosing speakers and random topics. Everyone is encouraged to contribute to the theme: give a lightning talk, demo a project, lead the discussion of a research topic, whatever etc. The themes are not meant to restrict the meetings, rather to cultivate ideas and inspire people to share knowledge.
The topic of Modern Perl can cover anything related to recent trends in Perl dev: OOP (e.g. Moose), Perl 6, what's new in Perl v5.20, features in new module versions, etc.
Join us at 6pm for PerlJam where we go over beginner level topics. The topic for this month has yet to be determined.
