Introduction to ASN.1 BER Encoding

Although ASN.1 and BER are lower-level than many of our recent talks, Chris did a really good job of covering the subject in a way that everyone could understand. The questions from the audience were handled well and everyone seemed to be following the topic.

Near the end, the discussion turned to releasing his code on CPAN and potential alternate implementations. Chris pointed out that there are other implementations already on CPAN and most of his coding had been in service of learning and understanding.

Chris has made his presentation available on-line. His presentation and supporting code are available on github.

We had 8 people attending this month. As always, we'd like to thank Hostgator, LLC for providing the meeting space and food for the group.
