What is a Perl Monger?
One definition is that we're "a loose confederation of Perl hackers, coders, and accidental programmers whose goal is to develop the social community of Perl - after all, it's more than a language - it's a culture and a floor wax." Whatever. We use Perl as a programming language, and like it, and think it makes our work/play/lives a little easier. Some of us are programmers, sysadmins, or technically inclined webmasters; and some of us use Perl recreationally. Some are fairly expert; some are just beginning and want to learn the language.
How often do we meet?
We don't meet very often at all, formally. Boulder seems to have more than its fair share of strong technical groups, and we just haven't seen the need to schedule regular Perl-only get-togethers. On the other hand, some of us get together informally to do things like play disc golf, or raid the local bookstore, or go hiking, and we talk about Perl while we do other things. You are more than welcome to join the list and suggest your favorite social activity. (Or just ask your Perl questions -- that's okay too!)

If you have other questions about Perl or Perl Mongers . . . well, "click the link," as they say.
