  Bill Ward, Making Your Life Easier with Perl

   Whether you're updating a directory full of symbolic links or making bulk
   edits to a group of text files, or any other tedious manual task, there is
   a myriad of opportunities on Linux for automation via scripting in
   languages such as Perl. In this talk Bill will review some useful tips and
   techniques for automating tasks under Linux, revealing key aspects of the
   Perl language, and features such as regular expressions, along the way.
   Learn how to identify and install Perl modules, including using your
   Debian or RPM packaging system to keep them up to date. No prior Perl
   knowledge is required.

   Bill Ward has been programming in Perl since 1993 in the system
   administration and Web development fields. He has been teaching Perl since
   the late 1990's, first at De Anza College and later as his own company,
   Bay View Training. He also works at Oracle as a software architect in the
   Infrastructure Systems Development group. He was the founder of PenLUG in
   2003. His company is offering Perl training classes open to the public in
   October in Sunnyvale, CA, and in November in Dallas, TX, and he is
   available for private Perl coaching or on-site training classes.


  Although it is not required, we like to have an idea of how many
  people to expect, so if possible please email rsvp at penlug.org if you
  are planning to attend.


  For information on getting to the meeting, please see:

  Traffic on 101 can be pretty bad in the evening, so we encourage you
  to check traffic conditions before driving by dialing 5-1-1 on your
  phone or visiting www.511.org, and if possible to take public transit
  (best bet: bicycle via Caltrain) or carpool to this meeting.
