  Parrot Virtual Machine

   Parrot hit 1.0 in March of this year. A virtual machine like no other,
   Parrot targets dynamic languages such as Python, Perl, PHP, and Ruby, it
   hosts a powerful suite of compiler tools tailored to dynamic languages and
   a next generation regular expression engine. This talk teaches the skills
   needed to get started hacking in Parrot, particularly in working with the
   compiler tools to write a new language or extend an existing one.

  Allison Randal

   Allison is a C hacker, architect and lead developer of Parrot, chairman of
   the Parrot Foundation, co-author of "Perl 6 & Parrot Essentials", and
   founder and president of Onyx Neon Press. She also works for O'Reilly
   Media, planning the program for their Open Source Convention.

RSVP

  Although it is not required, we like to have an idea of how many
  people to expect, so if possible please email rsvp@penlug.org if you
  are planning to attend.

GETTING THERE

  For information on getting to the meeting, please see:
    http://www.penlug.org/twiki/bin/view/Home/DrivingDirectionsOpenStreetMap
    http://www.penlug.org/twiki/bin/view/Home/TransitDirectionsOpenStreetMap
    http://maps.google.com/maps?q=1370+Willow+Rd,+Menlo+Park,+CA+94025

  Traffic on 101 can be pretty bad in the evening, so we encourage you
  to check traffic conditions before driving by dialing 5-1-1 on your
  phone or visiting www.511.org, and if possible to take public transit
  (best bet: bicycle via Caltrain) or carpool to this meeting.
