Mark-Jason Dominus visited Chicago.PM back in 2006, and his "Red Flags and Program Repair Shop" talk was wonderful. http:// perl.plover.com/flagbook/yak/Chi/slide001.html
In June, Chicago Perl Mongers will be doing the same thing, albeit without Mark's help. We'll take real code from users and find ways to improve it. I (Andy) will take the code and find what I suggest as ways to improve it, and present those at the meeting. As a group, we can also discuss other ways that things could be improved.
If you'd like to submit code you've written for public scrutiny and improvement, email it to andy at petdance.com, the larger the better. Andy will pull out likely candidates for scrutiny and we'll discuss them as a group at the meeting.
I need your code submissions by June 5th, so please get them in now, before it's too late.
Here is a link to the Chicago Perl Monger's website for the meeting.
As with all Chicago Perl Mongers meetings, everyone is welcome, whether or not you consider yourself a member. We look forward to seeing you there!
