The Tel Aviv Open Source Club will host a talk by Yaron Meiry ("Sawyer") about "Programming Red Flags") on 28-June-2009.

The meeting will take place at Tel Aviv University, at the Schreiber Maths&CS building, room 008 on 18:30. So mark your calendars. More information can be found on the wiki page for the meeting.

Attendance is free, it is not necessary to RSVP and everyone are welcome.

With any other problems, feel free to contact me.


Some programming habits should be avoided at all costs; some should be considered with care and some are just divine. Red flags tell us what to try and avoid and what to inspect more closely. They are a sign of code that might become problematic or straightforwardly dangerous. The talk will be Perl-oriented (with Perl examples) but the programming practices are generic and can be applied to most programming languages, so if you program in Ruby, Python, PHP or other languages, this talks to you as well.

Hopefully by the time we're done, you'll be able to write cleaner, more maintainable, less error-prone, and better code. If not, your money back guarantee!
