You're at the site for the Washington D.C. area Perl Mongers. We get together and talk about perl, teach one another new tricks of the trade and advocate the language wherever possible. Forays into other open-source software & hardware have been known to happen. Have ideas for the web site? Feel free to create a wiki page for your content. :)
Our meetings go down on the first Tuesday of every month in Washington, DC. When meetings don't happen on the first Tuesday of the month, we are notified on the mailing list, and this site and meetup.com is updated.
Meet outside of Optoro, 702 H Street NW, we'll head upstairs at 7:30pm. Meetings usually go until 9:00 -- if anyone is interested in hanging out before/after there is plenty to do in the area!
Join our DC Perl Mongers Meetup Group, subscribe to the Calendar, and join our mailing list (see bottom of page)!
All meetings are devoted to group discussion and helping each other. But it is nice to have a formal presentation or specific topic as well. Here is the queue of speakers who have proposed topics to be discussed at upcoming meetings.
- Day-to-day dev tools
- Lightning Talks
- Padre as a Perl IDE
- Vim as a Perl IDE
- Misc. questions about perl & related technologies.
- Perl Testing Tutorial
- Developing Perl RESTful API
If you have an idea for a topic or would like to make a presentation, please send a note to the mailing list, or bring it up at a meeting... or edit this page and add it to the list!
See the Meeting Notes, for links and details.
- 02-02-2016: Comparative asynchronous programming in Perl 5 and Perl 6 (collaboration by plicease, awwaiid and jet)
- 2016-01-05: Testing an Imaginary Beowulf Cluster of RESTful Services
- This talk by Plicease will be several small vignettes on testing. I will be drawing from my experience from adopting and writing a number of niche testing modules on CPAN. In my day job, which is keeping dev, test and production clusters running smoothly for developers and scientists, I’ve used these tools to improve confidence in the software that we deploy. If there is time I will also touch on Test::Stream which is the next generation testing framework on the horizon for Perl.
