Notes for Raleigh Perl Mongers Meeting

November 18, 1999

We met again at Glaxo Wellcome, with Don Cain as host. Thanks, Don!

Our featured speaker was Rasmus Lerdorf, creator of PHP. He gave a talk on the origins of PHP, why it's not perl (or a competitor to perl, even), how you use it and what it's strengths are. The talk was well-received and resulted in quite a number of questions (as well as one convert [hi Brian :-)]). Thanks, Rasmus, for dropping by!

We gave away a copy of O'Reilly's User Friendly (a print version of Illiad's comic).

Next month's meeting will be a social... Please sign up to bring something. Thanks!
