AmsterdamX is a Perl Mongers group of English-speaking Perl developers in Amsterdam. We meet to have talks and/or social time every so often, usually monthly.
Meetings and Events
All meetings organized by AmsterdamX.pm are completely 100% free-of-charge, and everyone is invited. Anyone can give talks on almost any subject, while Perl-related subjects are obviously more recommended. :) Meetings are usually held at Booking.com, 1017CE, Herengracht 597.
If you feel like giving a talk, contact the AmsterdamX Perl Mongers mailing list, or contact Sawyer X directly.
The meetings are suitable for beginners, intermediates, and advanced!

Stevan Little :: Hold my beer and watch this!
Perl has been described in many ways; a Shinto Shrine, executable line noise, a Swiss Army Chainsaw, the Duct Tape of the Internet, etc. But I think Perl is more like a old pop star, always reinventing itself to stay relevant, never truly leaving our consciousness, always just a melody away. What is the state of Perl today? Will Perl 6 be the big comeback? Will 2017 be the year we make Perl great again?
Sawyer X :: Perl 5.24, 5.26, and the Future of Perl 5
Perl 5 is doing well in its latest stable version: 5.24. It will soon see it's newest version: 5.26. So why is 5.24 exciting, why will 5.26 be even more exciting, and what can we expect of future versions of Perl 5?
This is my talk given at FOSDEM, for those who could not attend and would like to know what the status and the future of Perl 5 is.
