( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Thanks to the comments of various people over the last few days at YAPC::EU, in particular cog's talk on wednesday, I seem to have talked myself into arranging a perlmongers group.

Currently there's a big gap in the map between Nottingham and Edinburgh, relieved only by a red dot in Hull. While that would be OK-ish for me (at least some of the time) it's not a lot of help for perlers in Leeds, Manchester, and points further north and west - I guess Nottingham is reasonably close for those in the Sheffield area. The WYPUG.pm group listed at pm.org seems to be inactive. From conversations with the potential members who were present at YAPC::EU, the idea would be to have quarterly meetings, varying venue to try and keep things fair to everyone. Manchester and Leeds are candidates for a first meeting, as they are reasonably central and well served by public transport.

We're provisionally calling this the NorthOfEngland.pm group. Alternative suggestions are welcome (although suggestions such as 'Whippets.pm','FlatCaps.pm' etc. are likely to be ignored ;-)).

Anyone interested in joining can subscribe to the temporary mailing list http://g0n.net/mailman/listinfo/northofengland.pm. When you subscribe to the list, please post a message introducing yourself, giving some indication of where you're located. We can register with pm.org when we've settled the geographic scope and name.

I'll cross post this to

  • use.perl
  • local LUGs

Other suggestions and comments would be very welcome.

Update: It seems there are still some DNS problems with that domain (ISP--), if you can't resolve the link, you can still get to the mailing list by sending a mail with a subject of 'subscribe' to northofengland.pm-request@g0n.net. In the meantime I'll make Yet Another attempt to get the DNS sorted.

In reply to Proposed North of England PerlMongers group by g0n

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
