Princeton.pm? Mercer.pm? Rutgers.pm?

Well, I now live in Plainsboro, NJ, and I work full-time in Princeton, NJ. Princeton's in Mercer County. I know I've gotten together with a monk from the area last summer (I'm sorry, I don't remember your name!).

The Perl Monger's web site lists a Princeton.pm, but the web site is defunct (and never was very funct, according to the Wayback Machine), and the person listed as its head isn't responding to my emails. I'd like to organize a Perl Mongers group in this area -- whether that be the Princeton area, the Rutgers area, or Mercer County in general.

Any monks here from the area? Anyone interested in forming Perl Mongers group, meeting at least monthly?

    I live and work in the Rutgers area (Edison). My perl is not that advanced, so I don't know if I could contribute much. I'm interested though, so let me know if you organize something. Maybe I could get some of the other perl programmers from my office interested too.

      You needn't be a Perl master to be a Perl monger. The types of "contributions" one would give to the group would be more in the realm of topics to discuss, books to suggest, places to meet, and beers to drink. ;) Of course, code review and more code-heavy material is encouraged too.

      My vision for the group would be to get together with Perl programmers from the area, whether they be college students, professional programmers, pleasure hackers, or any other type. And the more, the merrier. If you have some interested members in your office, feel free to invite them.

    I'm the monk you had lunch with last year. I'd love to get involved in a Central NJ perl group. I live in North Brunswick - 5 miles south of Rutgers' Cook and Douglas campuses.

    90% of every Perl application is already written.

    ("Where did July go?" he wondered as he posted.) I'd be interested. I'm in Princeton, working and living (in that order, it seems...).
