Portland Perl Mongers - Perl in the OpenBSD base system
Most classes require prior sign up. Please check in at the front desk when you arrive to let them know you are here for the class. Bags must be checked at the front entrance.
Join us back at Freegeek this month for a talk by Andrew on Perl in OpenBSD.
Andrew Fresh will be previewing his hopeful YAPC::NA talk on Perl in the OpenBSD base system.
Perl 5.003 was imported as part of the OpenBSD base system in 1996 by Jason Downs (downsj@) and has been used heavily ever since. Quite a few system utilites are written in perl, one of the largest being Marc Espie's (espie@) rewrite of the package management tools and his amazing dpb (distributed package build) tool. Andrew is the current maintainer for perl in OpenBSD and wants to share what's going on.
Join us afterwards at the SE Lucky Lab for drinks and more conversation.
