Boston.pm will have a tech meeting tonight, Tuesday, March 13, at MIT,
in building E51, room 376 (directions below), starting at 7:15pm.

Jesse Vincent will give his intro to Jifty talk from OSCON.  Here's the
OSCON session description:

  Jifty is a new full-stack web framework written in Perl. It comes with
  built in Continuations, Halos, AJAX/AHAH support, data model and database
  management, and a Pony.
  This talk is a brief overview of Jifty and will give developers the tools
  they need to get started with their first Jifty application. Discussed are
  Jifty's innovative declarative syntax, advanced AJAX/AHAH support,
  Continuations, as well as the suite of tools Jifty comes with that help
  developers build pretty, modern web applications quickly and painlessly. 
  For more information about Jifty, see http://jifty.org.

Sean Quinlan will give a presentation on using AJAX and mod_perl handlers
to do some nifty little things very efficiently - this will be more about
the general concept than anything deeply technical.

Many thanks to Jesse and Sean for volunteering to give presentations on
short notice!

RSVP to me if you're planning to attend - rjk-bostonpm(at)tamias.net.

Pizza and soda will be provided.

Directions to MIT, Building E51:

Building E51 (the Tang Center) is located at the corners of Amherst and
Wadsworth Streets in Cambridge.


Directions by T:

Take the Red Line to Kendall.  Building E51 is right around the corner from
the T stop.  From the Inbound side, facing into Main Street, turn right
(toward Boston) and walk down the block.  Turn right on Wadsworth Street
and walk to the corner of Amherst Street.  Building E51 is the building
across the street directly in front of you with the metal canopy.

Directions by Car:

General directions provided by MIT:


The Boston Linux and Unix user group also meets at E51, so you may find
their directions helpful as well (keeping in mind that we will be meeting
in room 376, not room 315):


Parking Information:

MIT's Amherst Street Lot is adjacent to the building:


Officially, a sticker is required to park in the lot.  However, we've been
told unofficially that there is no enforcement after 3pm weekdays, nor on
the weekends.  Chances are very slim that cars will be ticketed.
Nonetheless, parking in the lot is at your own risk.
