Socialable Mongers

One of the nice things about the Perl community is its friendliness. I’ve met up with Perl Mongers on three continents. It’s easy, if you’re going past a city you just look for local groups on the web site and drop them a mail. There are hundreds of cities in the world where I can be guaranteed finding someone to share a beer or a pizza with.

And over the next few days I’m going to see both sides of that equation.

Tonight there’s a emergency meeting. The emergency is that there are a couple of visitors in town and it would be rude if we didn’t entertain them. The visitors are David Adler (dha) from New York and Gianni Ceccarelli (dakkar) from Italy. We’ll be in the Star Tavern from about 6:30pm.

Then over the weekend I’ll be in Edinburgh. And that means spending an evening with I’ll be meeting them at the Cumberland Bar at about 7pm on Sunday.

You would, of course, be most welcome at either of these events.

And the next time you’re travelling the world (or even just travelling round your country) why not give it a try. Get in touch with a Perl Monger group and let some locals show you around,
