Munging Mongering Perl in Victoria

Welcome to the web page of the Victoria Perl Mongers!

We're located on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada (if you're looking for Victoria, Australia, you've come to the wrong place).

We meet on an irregular basis; check the mailing list. If there is no meeting announcement posted there, we are not meeting. To join our mailing list, visit this page:

Anyone who can get to our meetings is welcome; we're well located for anyone in the southern half of Vancouver Island.

Every Meeting

Time: If and when we meet, it is at 7:00 pm on the third Tuesday of the month, but this is irregular. Do not count on this page to be up to date; check the mailing list for an explicit meeting notice which will usually be sent out one week and one day before the meeting.
The last place we met was the offices of Enquisite, 3347 Oak Street.
