Social meet up.

21st September, 2005

The peripatetic Paul Fenwick, visiting Sydney giving Perl training courses, materialized to administer his hypnotic "Presentation Mind Control" talk. The audience was, er, spellbound. By popular demand, he gave the talk twice. :-)

Andrew Savige rabbited on about Damian Conway's new Perl Best Practices book. Nobody threw peanuts. The slides for this talk can be downloaded here.

16th August, 2005

Adam Kennedy was returning from OSCON via Sydney and offered to delay his flight to give his talk:

PPI: Parsing, Analyzing, and Manipulating Perl (without perl) http://conferences.oreillynet.com/cs/os2005/view/e_sess/6768

Nobody spoke up, so he went home as scheduled and will give it later when he's in town on the night of a meeting

(did the meeting actually happen?) No Stephen, our fearless leader, was ill so organisation fell over.

21st July, 2005

Combined group meeting of Perl Mongers and Python programmers with visitors from SAGE-NSW, SLUG, OSIA and other groups.

Graham Dumpleton from SyPy presented: Vampire, a mod_python extension.

Paul Fenwick presented: So You Want to Start a Small Business?.

Mike Bissett presented a talk on Catalyst.

After the meeting many mongers adjourned to a nearby bar. Apparently Mike got very drunk when the guy from the Debian users group suggested (with others) that he drink a flaming blue shit..ouch

2nd June, 2005

Stas' mod_perl talk. See full description.

Frazer Irving [in the middle of Stas's talk]: "Guys, I've had fun. Thanks heaps, but I've had way too much to drink and I just can't concentrate any more, so I've gotta go."
