What is Perl Mongers?

Perl Mongers logo

Perl Mongers is both a common term for a Perl user group (like this one!) as well as "a loose association" of Perl user groups around the world. There are hundreds of such groups; many meet monthly, stay in touch, promote Perl to the larger programming community, and organize lectures, talks and discussions.
