Two short talks this month:
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, details to follow
Help us choose talks!
What is GeekUp?
GeekUp is a community of web designers, web developers, and other tech-minded folk from the North West. Our socials take place once a month in Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester and are always a lively place to share ideas and spread a little knowledge.
Who can attend GeekUp?
While the focus for GeekUp is predominately web related anybody involved in the technology industry is more than welcome to attend a GeekUp. The monthly events are free, we just ask that you buy your own beer.
