Pegex and Acmeism

Acmeism (http://acmeism.org) is the ability to think about and express one's creative ideas, beyond language borders. In programming, this means creating things that benefit multiple languages and communities. Perl is effectively one great community with 2 great languages (Perl 5 and Perl 6). Acmeism is essential to mongers, but kindly extends to pythonistas, brigadiers and nodelings as well.

Pegex is an Acmeist parsing language. Think of it as Perl 6 Rules and Regexp::Grammars for all programmers. Write One Grammar, Parse Everywhere. This makes Pegex the quintessential tool in the Acmeist's belt. Pegex.pm is fully functional in Perl 5, and working it's way across the Acmeist landscape.

Come see Ingy döt Net (an inventor of YAML and the father of Acmeism) talk about Pegex and the exciting future of Acmeism.

    I don't think I've seen so many Perl gurus in one room outside of a YAPC.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
