Evented I/O Programming

  • Mar 22, 2012 · 5:45 PM

Hello all!  It is my pleasure to present to you another of the periodically scheduled technical meetups.  The focus of this one is Evented I/O Programming in Perl.  The agenda is as follows:

  • Greetings by the event organizer (Jordan Adler)
  • Introductions of all event participants and newcomers
  • A short survey on further technical topics of interest.  Have a topic that interests you or you can talk on?  Let us know!
  • "Evented Perl: a Perl for all occasions", a presentation by Rudy Lippan:

Overview of events and event-driving programming. Events vs. threads in general, and with respect to Perl.  Introduction to the EV library and then continuing on to an overview of AnyEvent. Time permitting there will be coverage of IO::Async and IO::Lambda.   An example program will be provided.

  • "POE: Solving Problems", a presentation by Jordan Adler:

POE is an event engine that is portable, open, stable, and production-ready.  The focus of this presentation will be 2 examples of real-world problems that are best solved with an event engine.  A contrast will be made to the traditional forking method.  Examples will be provided.

  • Announcement of the next meeting
  • Finally, as is customary, all are invited to the social gathering at a bar to be determined.

    I went to see a talk about POE... Instead I got an apology by an unprepared speaker followed by an overview of event loop pros and cons compared with threading and forking. This was a good talk for those unfamiliar with event programming in general as well as various alternatives. However, being familiar with other methods already, I was mostly interested in api specific methods & techniques that CPAN examples don't offer.

    The talks were good and the speakers knew what they were talking about. I do wish however there was more discussion. It was also unfortunate that everyone left immediately after, it would have been nice to talk with the group.

    Looking forward to seeing you all tonight!

    Can't wait to hear you speak as well. We should send out a few timely reminders about this event since the majority of people who signed up signed up a very long time ago when we originally posted up the idea.

    I can't wait for this! Anyone else care to speak?

    I've used AnyEvent and could show some examples.. I'm not the world's biggest expert on it, for sure. Also very likely could offer meeting space in the Times Square area.

    No, but I certainly don't want to be the only one speaking. I've only done a handful of presentations.

    Excellent is your talk contingent on talks on the other two modules?

    February 15, 2011

  • Jordan A.

    I'm very good with POE. I could do a POE talk, if someone wants to do IO::Async or AnyEvent.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I'm logged in and waiting for a response Ill tell you how it goes.

    I've used it a very little bit, but I'm just an amateur with it. Have you tried #poe on

    Does anyone have experience with POE or know someone who has used it?
