Hello all,

The Detroit Perl Mongers was restarted last year after several years or
dormancy. The last year has seen a steady group of dedicated people
meeting most months to talk about all things Perl related. Last month we
celebrated the first year of the new Detroit Perl Mongers with a beer
and BBQ social that was a huge success. But frankly we want more from
our group. We want more people at our meetings and more people
volunteering to present. Detroit.pm never limited itself to Perl only
presentations but somehow that's all we ever had. How did that happen?

So we have a new group that will encompass all dynamic languages. That
means Perl, Ruby, Python, Lisp, Scheme, PHP, ActionScript, and anything
else you can think of. What we don't have is a new group name yet, so
we'll leave that to our next meeting. Meetings will still be hosted by
ePrize. Out next meeting is Tuesday, October 16th at 7pm. Chad Carr will
present, Building Lisp web applications using HUNCHENTOOT.

"A modern web application framework built in Common Lisp, HUNCHENTOOT
allows very rapid development, as well as tight integration with
development tools, remote debugging, and dynamic code deployment."

And if Lisp isn't your thing, Ken Fox will be presenting on tied objects
in Perl. I think both presentations will be very interesting!

The meeting location is One ePrize Drive, Pleasant Ridge, MI 48069. The
meeting starts at 7pm with food provided by ePrize. Please RSVP to
