In addition to the schedule for August's meeting see: http://perl.org.il/pipermail/perl/2007-July/008858.html and Israel.pm meeting for August 2007 -- perl.org.il meeting announcement we also have a schedule for September's meeting:
Yuval Kogman (nothingmuch) will give a talk about
"Object Meta Programming"
(he's also talking about this on YAPC)
Object meta programming is a hot topic nowadays, with Perl
6's feature set materializing and Moose gaining acceptance.
Meta programming, especially unstructured, is prevalent in
most projects. Things such as object persistence, dynamic
code, and establishing a common base class typically involve
a degree of meta programming. This talk will try to get you
thinking of such problems from a meta object perspective.
This talk is both a Moose introduction and a general
discussion of meta programming. It will help you make better
use of Moose's full strength as a meta object protocol
rather than just a cute class generation syntax. However,
the focus is on the general approach as opposed to the
details of Moose, making it useful regardless of whether you
use Moose, another toolkit, or even another language.
Duration: 60 minutes.
We expect to start sometime between 18:30 and 19:00.
There's an available slot of another talk -- so please let
me know if you want to give a talk in September.
Location: F5 Networks offices in Tel-Aviv: HaBarzel 24b,
entrance floor (follow the signs with the F5 logo on them).
