New York Perlmongers Technical Meetup

Two presentations:

1. Christopher Frenz:  Advanced Information Retrieval and Extraction

Chris, author of Pro Perl Parsing (, will discuss topics such as using a search API to retrieve documents and extract pertinent information.  Examples will include mining Web sites for C\C++ code snippets and how to deal with cases where JavaScript makes extractions significantly more difficult.

2. Augustina Ragwitz:  Start Contributing to Perl, It's Easy!

The Perl community wants YOU to contribute! Whether you can barely write a line of code or have been hacking for years, you can make meaningful contributions! This session offers a high level tour of the CPAN and Perl core contribution process as well as a short tutorial for potential contributors on how to get started with patching CPAN modules and making Perl core contributions.

    Didn't someone ask about sandboxing Perl code last night? Maybe this is the answer?

    Got there late (7pm) and couldn't get in as the door was locked. Knocked, no answer..... At the security desk, I tried to connect to a nearby WiFi service (MediaMath didn't reach down to the ground floor) to check I had the right address, but couldn't.. Finally, with the help of a friend on the phone, I found I had the right address - so went back up to MediaMath around 7:30pm, knocked again and raised a response - was let in to find the presentation was all but over.. Told Jim the door was locked and I couldn't get in, but he just shrugged his shoulders... Pity I came in from NJ to miss 30mins of a presentation I could have seen 'if the door had been open'... :(

      I'm very sorry that this happened. I work at MediaMath and I will make sure the issue of late arrivals being able to get in easily is addressed for future meetups.

    Thank you for the great presentations! Is there any chance that we could get a copy of the slides for the first PowerPoint?

    It was excellent. There were two technical presentations that were brief and to the point. As usual, I picked up several juicy tidbits of info that I can immediately put to use.
