About Us

Open Source Developers' Conference

Melbourne Perl Mongers is a big supporter of Australia's Open Source Developers' Conference. This conference has been a huge success for the Australian Open Source community since 2004 and always includes streams for Perl, Python, PHP, Mono and other Open Source programming tools. For more information about the conference visit the OSDC website.

Open Source Developers' Club

The 2004 Open Source Developers' Conference was a huge success in bringing together programmers of many programming languages. Thus, in March 2005, Melbourne Perl Mongers chose to share its meetings with a new group: the Open Source Developers' Club. The focus of these meetings is to discuss technologies common to all attendees such as databases and data formats.

OSDClub meetings run on a bimonthly basis and are hosted by various open source language user groups in Melbourne, including Melbourne Perl Mongers and the Melbourne PHP Users Group.

For information on when and where the next OSDClub meeting will be, see the OSDClub webpage.
