Contents Meeting February 23, 2009

We had a nice turnout for this meeting. It was very interesting getting to know Shlomi and listening to his "words of wisdom". At the start of his talk, he asked for different ways to solve a simple programming problem in perl. He got about 6 ways, but then came up with at least 6 more. After a short discussion, and break we heard David expand on a ppt from the internet called "why perl sucks" and 2 other papers exploring some of the defects in Perl. We had a new visitor to our meeting called Zohar, but unfortunately he had little time to enjoy it as we ended a little early this time
