Below are the current list of Birmingham Perl Mongers, who have been brave enough to have some of the details available on the site. Most of us are at each meeting, so hopefully you'll recognise at least one of us, if you want to come and join us. We're a friendly bunch, and always willing to meet new Perl Mongers.

If you wish to include your details, send a brief bio of yourself and photo to See examples of the bios below for an idea of what to include.

Andrew Stringer
Name:Andrew Stringer

Currently I work in local government and have been using Perl since 2004 both at work and for private projects. My main areas of interest are Linux & Open Source, to further the cause I'm involved with arranging tech talks for CovLUG. I run Slackware 12.0 on my desktop, but also use my trusty Mac G3. Windows? Huh?

Outside of Perl, I enjoy listening to music and am a member of an amateur dramatic group on the technical side.



Now that Birmingham Perl Mongers have become a registered not-for-profit company, our membership policy has had to change. Prior to incorporation anyone joining the mailing list or coming along to a meeting could consider themselves a member of the group. However, due to our incorporated status, we need to recognise membership in a more official capacity. The key below indicates the meaning of each level listed in each person's biography above.

Board Member An officer of the registered company.
Member An annually paid-up official member of the company.
Administrator Our non-member mascots.
Contributor A non-member of the company, but someone who has contributed to the content of the website or presented technical talks to the group.
Subscriber A non-member of the company, but someone who is a regular attendee of the social and/or technical meetings, or a frequent poster to the mailing list.

If you wish to become a paid-up member of Birmingham Perl Mongers, an annual fee of £25 (twenty-five pounds) for waged members and £10 (ten pounds) for unwaged members is requested. See one of the board members at one of our meetings or readour Terms and Conditions of Membership for more details. The membership fee is used to help fund the group for technical meetings by helping to pay for expenses for guest speakers and paying for incidentals such as new bulbs or repairs to the projector.

If you simply wish to be added to the website as a regular attendee of the group, please email Barbie with a picture of yourself (it'll be resized if necessary) together with some background info about yourself. Use the existing bios above as a guide as to what to include.
