  An Evening with Larry Wall


  Wednesday, 3 April, 7pm-9pm or so.


  Larry Wall


"There's more than one way to do it"; rather than lock in a topic for
this evening, we're expecting evolution.  Possible discussion includes
but is not limited to Perl 6 and Parrot, X10 home automation,
community collaboration in software development, and the physics of
language itself.   Expect an open, relaxing, and intriguing evening 
with a broad-minded and wonderful guy.  (No, Larry didn't write this.)  ;-)


Larry Wall is the creator of Perl, patch, and the rn newsreader.  He
is a linguist in human as well as machine languages, reads classical
Greek, and studied these as well as Chemistry and Music at Seattle
Pacific University, U.C. Berkeley, and U.C.L.A.  He has worked with
Unisys, JPL, Netlabs, and Seagate, as well as O'Reilly, working with a
wide range of technologies from discrete event simulators to


Cisco Building 9.  The land of NUMBERS. The VINEYARDS conference
center.  The side we are on is the Silver Oak/Jordan conference rooms,
where a large Cisco fountain is usually not turned on.  Directions on
how to get there are listed at:


We've tried our very best for these directions to be accurate.  If you
have any improvements to make, please let our Web Team know!


It's best if you arrive close to on time, as otherwise there may not
be someone posted at the door to let you in.  After the speakers end
their presentation there is usually a Q&A session, time for job
seekers and employers to meet, and often a few door prizes.  When the
meeting is over people are encouraged to chat a bit, but also to exit
the building so Cisco can lock up. Don't worry, a lot of us go to
dinner afterward so there's plenty of time to chat outdoors or

We look forward to seeing you there!
