GeekUp grassroot geekery in the UK.

GeekUp Liverpool

19:00 Tuesday May 27 2008
3345 Parr Street, Liverpool L1 4JN

GeekUp Liverpool takes place on the last Tuesday of every month. It's a grass-roots knowledge sharing and networking social for folks involved or interested in all forms of technology and creative media.

Two short talks this month:

Hakim Cassimally: People like to claim Perl is line noise, with its sigils and regular expressions. But a lot of the features that make it possible to write, yes, truly awful, unreadable Perl, also let you write clean, maintainable code too.

  • those $%&* sigils!
  • There's More Than One Way To Do It
  • strings and data structures
  • map, grep, first class functions
  • metaprogramming and the CPAN
  • modern Object Oriented programming with Moose

And a talk from Martin Owen on Erlang

Directions, (you'll need them). 3345 Parr St is not clearly advertised on the street. Use Google StreetView to see the door to the bar. It's next to the Parr St Garage.
