To start the new year off in style, Birmingham.pm have finally unveiled their new group website.
Due to the large wealth of content, and the time taken to update the static pages, a new dynamic site was envisioned. The HTML design was the work of Birmingham.pm regulars JJ and Chris Marsh, with the backend design and coding by Barbie. The logo and banner image are all JJ's work too.
Expect to see the content grow considerably as more Perl related news, reviews and events get added in the future.
The site has been in development for several months, and is built on a new website management system called Labyrinth. Labyrinth is written in Perl and uses the Template Toolkit to render the pages (include our new ICalendar). The new site is being hosted by The Positive Internet Company Ltd., for which Birmingham Perl Mongers are very gratefully.
Hope you like it as much as we do.
