Perl is an open source programming language with over 26 years of development. Perl is used all over the world for virtually all purposes, ranging from small sysadmin jobs and rapid prototyping to large scale development projects. Our motto is "There is more than one way to do it" and Perl offers all the flexibility to get the job done.
The Perl-community is tremendously active with over 250 Perl user groups (so-called "Perl Mongers") worldwide. Most Perl Monger groups have regular, monthly, meetings. The Amsterdam Perl Mongers meet every 1st Tuesday for dinner and technical presentations. The Niederrhein Perl Mongers meet on the 3rd Tuesday, the Brussels Perl Mongers on the 2nd Tuesday.
