[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index] Special Tech Meeting with Damian Conway, Monday, Sept 25, at MIT

Damian Conway will be giving a couple of talks to Boston Perl Mongers 
this Monday. He's a well known Perl author and educator, and has a 
reputation for giving entertaining talks. The two he will be presenting 
are more on the entertaining side (their descriptions don't even mention 
Perl), so even if you aren't into Perl, you still might find them fun.

Please RSVP to Uri Guttman <uri(at)> if you plan to attend.

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 (for this meeting, we will be meeting 
in 315, rather than our usual room 376):

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.
