If you are the least bit interested in Perl in New Orleans, the first step
is to sign up to the mailing list.


I have reclaimed the list, which has been defunct for some time now. I
have also reclaimed the domain name, and I will be having a fairly static
website up in the next day.

As far as me, I am from New Orleans and spent about 5 years in Baton Rouge
working for LSU HPC. I currently reside in Houston working for cPanel, Inc
as a Perl developer. I am fairly active in the Houston.pm group. However, I
want to do what I can to rekindle a Perl user group in New Orleans, a group
I helped (re?)launch in the early 2000s.

The vision I have for this list and group is very loosely defined in my
head. I see it more as a virtual support and Perl advocacy community than
one planted firmly in meatspace.

However, if there begins to be interest in having face to face meetings, I
am happy to appoint someone in New Orleans to begin holding them.

Once the rush to join the email list is over <grin>, I will begin feeling
out what format will be best based on feedback from those who are involved.

Please pass this information on to anyone you think might be be interested.

Thank you!
