 Perl Seminar New York

 (between West 34 & 35 Sts, Manhattan)

 We'll have one of our "workshop" or "lab programming"

 Topic:  'minicpan' and 'visitcpan':  We will be hacking on these  
 tools originally created by Randal Schwartz and David Golden to add  
 new functionality.

 Full details of what we'll be doing are here:  http://
 Also check out that site (or join the perlsemny group for mail) on  
 additions to the agenda.


 To get the most out of this workshop session, you need to prepare
 your laptop.  You will need:

 1.  A laptop with wireless Internet access.

 2.  On that laptop -- or on a server to which you can connect from
 your laptop -- you should have already installed:
 a. CPAN::Mini (see above)
 b. App::CPAN::Mini::Visit (see above)
 c. A 'git' client

 3.  If possible, and if you have the space on your laptop or server,
 install a 'minicpan' following the instructions in CPAN::Mini.
 Note:  The original installation of a minicpan takes several hours.
 You probably should set it up and let it run overnight.  Subsequent
 refreshes run very fast.  But try to do the original minicpan install
 at least a day before next Tuesday.

 What You Will Gain from this Workshop

 1.  A 'minicpan' repository on disc.
 2.  Familiarity with useful tool 'visitcpan'.
 3.  A peek inside the minds of Randal, Ricardo and David.
 4.  Better appreciation of the joys of face-to-face hacking (F2FH).
 5.  Greater fluency with use of 'git' in collaborative software

 If you can't bring a laptop to this meeting, please come anyway so
 that you can contribute to a team's work.

 Thank you very much.
 Jim Keenan

 Time: 6:00pm
 Duration: 2 hours
 Location: NY Public Library Hudson Park Branch, 66 Leroy St., NY NY 10014

   This week, we're going to continue looking at Smalltalk via Squeak.
   There may also be some discussion related to the C++ online workshop
   taking place on nylug-talk, and general discussion about Python.
   We'll be working through example code.

   Bring something to discuss! There's a blackboard, chalk, and Internet
   access.  Notebook computers are helpful but not required.
   All levels of Python experience from totally new to experienced welcome!

   *  Squeak Smalltalk environment

   *  NYLUG-Talk list (archive is down)

 Map & Directions:

   We meet in the basement. Enter the library and head to the back. If the
   door is closed when you arrive you can ask the manager of the library for
   the keys to the room if you're comfortable opening up the basement, or
   you can wait for some of the others to arrive.

   We will continue meeting on a bi-weekly basis at the Hudson Library at
   66 Leroy St New York, NY 10014.

   It is helpful, but not necessary to have a notebook computer.          
   The WiFi at the library works now.
