  • March 24, 2016: Meetup, Location
    The DC-Baltimore Perl Workshop (http://www.dcbpw.org/) is next month (April 16&17). Maybe you are giving a talk there or have been toying with the idea of making a presentation somewhere else, like YAPC (http://www.yapcna.org) this June. The idea is we can do a run through of your talk with a much smaller audience and get some feedback before you go live! If not, let's get together anyway and catch up in the usual way with pizza.

    I've rented a lane (10 pin) at Mustang Alley's for Tuesday, Dec 29th at 7pm. It would be good to arrive a few minutes early so we can get our shoes and everything to take full advantage of the lane time.
