Times:   from 7pm onwards (see below)
Venue:   Birmingham Science Park Aston, Faraday Wharf, Holt Street,

  • Migrating a PHP website to Perl/Catalyst [Steve Pitchford]
  • Moose - quick, easy and efficient OO in Perl5 [Richard Wallman]


This month we'll be taking a look at some aspects of Modern Perl. Steve Pitchford will be taking a look at Catalyst, while Richard Wallman will be introducing us to Moose.

Once again we'll be at The Birmingham Science Park Aston for the September meeting. The venue is a very short walk from Aston University and even shorter walk from 3 pubs!

The plan for the evening is for early arrivals to meet at about 6pm in The Sack Of Potatoes for food and predrinks, and then head over to the meeting rooms at about 7.45pm, for an 8pm start. We'll see how things progress and will probably aim to finish up around 10pm at the latest and head to one of the pubs for those who want a quick drink afterwards.

Venue & Directions:

Birmingham Science Park Aston, Faraday Wharf, Holt Street, Birmingham, B7 4BB

- Google Map

The venue is just over a mile walk from New Street station, and is located behind Aston University. For those travelling by car, the venue has a car park you can use, although there is on-street parking around the venue too. For further directions and parking see details on the venue website.


These are the rough times for the evening:

  • Meet at The Sack Of Potatoes: 6.00pm
  • Tech Meet at BSPA: 8.00pm-10.00pm
  • Head to a pub afterwards: 10.00pm

See you there ;)
