This meeting will be held virtually.
John Driezen will discuss a Python application he wrote to track scrap metal prices. He will show us some programs that led him to the final version of the app, and show his motivations for developing the app. (Note: John was originally scheduled to give this talk last April, but he had to cancel. So we have rescheduled him now.)
Eugen Konkov will demonstrate Devel::DebugHooks, a Perl debugger he developed. He will show us how to stop "print debugging" and instead trace variables, find out where data is loaded, measure execution time in repeatable ways, without having to restart your applications.
