The November 2009 meeting of Washington DC Linux user group will take place on
Wednesday, November 18 at 7pm.
Zachariah Wadler will be de-mystifying regular expressions. They are
great for processing textual input but very intimidating to the
uninitiated. He will go over the basic regexp: metacharacters,
grouping, etc. He'll show a number of real world examples and the
Perl 5 extended regular expression syntax as well.
The meeting location is our usual 2025 M street, NW in downtown DC.
There will be signs in front of the building. The location is within 3
nearby Metro stops, both on the red (Dupont, Farragut North) and
blue/orange (Farragut West, Foggy Bottom [a bit of a hike]) lines.
Parking in the area is available for approximately $5; there's even
parking in the building itself. Street parking is free after 6:30pm,
but scarce. There's a parking lot at 23rd St. between M and L that is
not enforced after 7pm (people have successfully parked there for
years---no one we know was ticketed or towed yet, but it could happen).
The meeting dates for 2009 are Nov 18 and Dec 16.
