Our next meeting, on February 11th, is a lightning talk session, which
means that there will be several speakers with some 5-10 minutes each.
The idea of this meeting is to share and compare the different ways we
make the computer mimic a web browser in order to fetch data over HTTP.
In other words, the topic is web crawlers and web bots.
YOUR CRAWLER DOESN'T HAVE TO BE EXTRAORDINARY TO QUALIFY. Please let me
decide whether it's interesting or not.
Ideally, I would be glad to get responses from ALL of you, with the
practice you have for fetching data. Assuming you're free on that Monday
to talk about it, of course. The evening's programme depends on these
offers. So if you're using COBOL's HTTP library (is there any?) for this
purpose, I'll put it after someone else showing it Python and before
Perl. But I need speakers for each.
Also, if you feel that you can say a few words about any of wget, curl,
lynx, GET or any of the other similar tools, please tell me so.
So it's really not a big hassle. No slides, just show the code, say a
few words, take a few questions, and next. So please come up with
whatever games you make. If you're not sure that you can attend (but
might), please tell me so as well.
Offers should be posted to ME OFFLIST. Kindly enclose some sample code
to get the idea of where it's going (or if it's final, even better).
Keep in mind that the submitted code WILL BE PUBLISHED after the meeting.
Thanks, and let's cook something nice!
