Various things went wrong with my attempt to set up PM group(s) in the north of England. But a trip to Vienna has my enthusiasm all fired up again, so it's time for another attempt.

The new mailing list is at

The plan is to restart, and have an inaugural meeting on (tentative) 7th December. Interested? Join the mailing list.

North of England perlmongers groups

Thanks to a DNS provider allowing the domain to lapse without telling me, the north of england mailing list existed for a couple of months, then promptly died. It did at least spawn before its untimely demise.

Thanks to Andy of, the northofengland discussion list has been re-established here. Anyone interested in joining Perlmongers groups in the North of England please feel free to sign up.

At the moment, I'm concentrating on getting a group set up in Yorkshire. Anyone in the Yorkshire area who's interested in joining a Perlmongers group and hasn't already been in touch, I can be contacted privately via /msg on PerlMonks or publicly via the mailing list.

Proposed North Of England PerlMongers group

(Cross posted from Perlmonks)

Thanks to the comments of various people over the last few days at YAPC::EU, in particular cog's talk on wednesday, I seem to have talked myself into arranging a perlmongers group.

Currently there's a big gap in the map between Nottingham and Edinburgh, relieved only by a red dot in Hull. While that would be OK-ish for me (at least some of the time) it's not a lot of help for perlers in Leeds, Manchester, and points further north and west - I guess Nottingham is reasonably close for those in the Sheffield area. The group listed at seems to be inactive. From conversations with the potential members who were present at YAPC::EU, the idea would be to have quarterly meetings, varying venue to try and keep things fair to everyone. Manchester and Leeds are candidates for a first meeting, as they are reasonably central and well served by public transport.

We're provisionally calling this the group. Alternative suggestions are welcome (although suggestions such as '','' etc. are likely to be ignored ;-)).

Anyone interested in joining can subscribe to the temporary mailing list. When you subscribe to the list, please post a message introducing yourself, giving some indication of where you're located. We can register with when we've settled the geographic scope and name.

Suggestions and comments would be very welcome.
