The Baltimore Perl Mongers is a group of people local to the Baltimore, Maryland area with an interest in the Perl programming language. We typically meet on the third Thursday of the month. Some of us are new to the language, some are well-acquainted, some use it on UNIX, others on Windows, some personally, some professionally ... but all are welcome.

I'm happy to inform you we have a new meeting space, provided to us generously by CargoTel ( This new place is just down the road from where we used to meet. The new location is in Baltimore on 2809 Boston St - STE 107, 21224. Member, Chris Rohlfs, really pulled through for us this month with getting us the meeting space (again). He's going to get us detailed entrance information a little later on. Also, we shouldreally be thankful to CargoTel, this is the second meeting space they have provided to our group and they are also one of the sponsors for the DC-Baltimore Perl Workshop.

Meeting Topic for Next Meeting


I started thinking about meeting topics for the next meeting. Mike B. suggested talking a little about DevOps, what it is, and why it's relevant to Perl Programmers. A lot of DevOps folks are Python and Ruby hackers, but I'm a Perl guy doing what might be classified as DevOps.

Please join the mailing list and make suggestions or requests!
