Next Tech Meeting
Tues, Jul 11th
The Perl Conference 2017 Review : Lightning Talk Dim Sum ( from TPC / YAPC::NA)
MIT E51-376 starting 7.30 (but there 7-ish)
Attendees will select Lightning Talks from The Perl Conference 2017
playlist. We can't play all 29 of them unless we 'gong' more than half
quickly after starting, but at 6 minutes each, we can get through a
dozen (unless we choose to discuss and experiment between).
Samples from among the 29 six-minute choices available -
* "Emulating Any API"
* "Perl 6 Str Considered Harmful"
* "Administering Slack Contests with Perl"
* "In Response to D. Conway's Test::Expr"
* "A Personalized Calendar in Perl"
* "Why Google's Dart should be your next programming language"
* "Hacking the Interviewing Process"
Bill will be our VJ, but the audience will lead.
* NOTE PARKING ALERT BELOW *
Tech Meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at MIT
building E51, Sloan School Tang Center [not the other Tang building!]
nearer to Kendall Sq than Mass Ave. (directions).
Talk begins at 7:30.
Refreshments in the hallway prior.
RSVP for count encouraged but not required, to email@example.com or
Boston-PM list, by 4pm Tuesday.
*** Parking Alert. ***
Recent changes in MIT Parking Dept web pages (parking , visitors,
public ) no longer allow un-permitted parking after-hours.
(This is a natural response to several other East Campus parking lots
being eaten by new building sites for campus expansion.)
Only legit parking is Cambridge meters (late hours!) and paid
Also, construction detour is even longer than last time if driving,
Wadsworth to/from Mem Drive & Amherst St to Amess both closed, only
access by car is Wadsworth to/from Main St east-bound.
Come by Train, Bus, Bicycle, or Foot if you can!
(Parking at MBTA Garages are convenient to T and not overpriced,
unlike most in-town garages.)
Further details on Parking, see http://boston.pm.org/MIT+Directions/
( Anyone with ideas for sites with safe gratis parking _and_ good MBTA
access, let me know ! )
