Silicon Valley Perl Mongers

It has been quite some time since I last attended a monthly gathering of the crowd. I even left the area for a while, but moved back a little over a year ago. However, I am not finding any still-viable links to the group. Has succumbed? Is there truly no Perl Mongers group in Silicon Valley, of all places?

    It is a long drive, but is active.

    We meet on the last Tuesday of every month at about 7PM.

    We talk about a lot of different things, and Perl often comes up. Sometimes people bring code to show off or questions. We have no agenda and seem to agree that we enjoy being somewhat disorganized, although we've never taken a vote on it. Other popular topics are electrical engineering, wood, guitars, knitting, computer-language-of-the-month, speculative theories, and babies. There are typically 6 to 15 attendees in a small room. You are allowed to bring a laptop and/or a 6-pack. Networking and a projector are often available.

    It should work perfectly the first time! - toma

      Yes, exactly. The San Francisco group still meets pretty regularly (we did a rousing round of lightning talks not too long ago):

      Sometimes we cop-out and just hang out with the BASS folks:

      There's also a fair amount of overlap with the local postgresql group (which usually, but not always, meets in the east bay):

      Oh, and the local linux group has got some good talks coming up:
      (Though of course SVLUG is going strong also.)
