NOTE: you will need to sign in at the front desk to gain access to the
building. More information is available on our website
http://www.gllug.org.uk

This event is FREE to members and non-members alike. We have 3 speakers
confirmed so far for the meeting

They are...

_Dave Cross_

Dave Cross runs Magnum Solutions Ltd, a London-based Open Source
consultancy. He is the author of "Data Munging with Perl" and a
co-author of "Perl Template Toolkit".

His talk is entitled "What's Wrong with ORM?"

MVC frameworks are really cool at the moment. And an important part of
an MVC framework is the model. And that means that Object Relational
Mapping (ORM) is really cool at the moment.

But most current ORM systems leave a lot to be desired. In this talk
we'll take a look at the state of the ORM marketplace - largely in
Perl but we'll touch on other languages too - and make some
suggestions on how they can be improved.

There may well be some incidental ranting on database metadata and the
people who don?t use it properly.

_George Wright_

George Wright is a KDE developer currently enrolled in the Google
Summer of Code 2006 programme to work on fixing and rewriting the KDE
client and independent client library backend for the NX Terminal
Server.

His talk is on the No Machine NX Server and the kNX client project.

_Huw Lynes_

Most people will know Huw from the years he spent as a System
Administrator at The Moving Picture Company in Soho. He is currently
working as the Grid Technology Specialist (read sysadmin with a stupid
title) at the Welsh eScience Centre at Cardiff University.

He will be giving a brief overview of Grid Computing, what it is, what
it
isn't and why you should care.

-----

Also on Sunday July 9th GLLUG is taking a summer expedition to
Bletchley Park, Bucks.
