Silicon Valley Perl Mongers

on Jan 23, 2008 at 19:08 UTC ( #663857=perlmeditation: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

It has been quite some time since I last attended a monthly gathering of the SV.pm 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 SV.pm succumbed? Is there truly no Perl Mongers group in Silicon Valley, of all places?

    It is a long drive, but Sonoma.pm 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

    SV.pm succumbed a few years ago. It's all Rails and Python in these parts now, at least as far as User groups go.

    SF.pm is still quite active.
      Yes, exactly. The San Francisco group still meets pretty regularly (we did a rousing round of lightning talks not too long ago):
      sf.pm.org

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

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

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