You are invited to join us at the next GatorLUG meeting in beautiful
smoke-filled Gainesville, FL (ranked number 1 place to live in some book
despite the current Mordor-like conditions). Clear your throat with cold and
inexpensive libations (Virtually Cuban on 13th street runs drink specials for
our meeting) while you learn about open technology. Come early and eat some
really great Cuban food.

Perl is a stable, cross platform programming language.
It is used for mission critical projects in the public and private sectors.
It is Open Source software, licensed under its Artistic License, or the GNU
General Public License (GPL).
Perl was created by Larry Wall and version 1.0 was released to usenet's
alt.comp.sources in 1987.
PC Magazine named Perl a finalist for its 1998 Technical Excellence Award in
the Development Tool category.
The Perl Journal estimates that there are over 1,000,000 Perl users and more
than 200 local Perl user groups on six continents.
Allen Rout works for the Open-Systems group at the University of Florida. Part
of his responsibility is backing up lots of data - truck loads in fact.
Daniel Westermann-Clark is a Web Developer in the Webadmin group at the
University of Florida. When he is not stuffing content into "the series of
tubes" and making it pretty he likes to help with the UF enterprise calendar
Have you done something interesting with Perl? Bring it to the discussion.
