Perl - Objects and OO Design
by Bruce James
see www.custard.demon.co.uk/perl.html (link to downloadable word document)
Many thanks for you talk, Bruce - It was a real pleasure to look at class design through the eyes of Design Patterns - and to see some examples such as Singletons, factories and Phrasebooks. Although I've been writing and designing code for years, the presentation by a different person and from a different angle provided me with great food for thought and I'll be thinking of your perspective in certain upcoming works! Thanks again - Graham

A Stand Alone Server
• Why do this?
• Apache
• Scripts
see www.wellho.net/solutions/ general-windows-running-apache-and-mysql-from-a-cd.html
This talk and example shows how a server based application can be burnt onto a CD, using only Open Source software that's freely distributable, so that "demo versions" can be made up for use away from the Internet / source network. It was originally written in association with a client who wants to put a "demo CD" in the hands of its sales team, but in practise the distribution is able to run install and support a fully distributed application.

• Why choose MySQL not Oracle
• Licensing issues
• MySQL releases
• Mysql tuning for huge systems
See www.wellho.net/ solutions/mysql-justification-mysql-v-oracle- open-source-v-commercial.html
