Presentations πŸ”— 1608661368  

Presentations put forward by our members Group Projects πŸ”— 1608661217  

Some members Houston Perl Mongers Group have worked together on projects that we would like to share with the community at large. Information about these projects will be listed here. This page lists both active projects and proposed projects.

Active projects each have their own page. The page contains information about the project including the Project Lead/Organizer, a list of developers working on the project, any reference materials, and links to download code associated with the project. This should work as long as each project remains relatively small. Any project that grows too large to maintain on a single page could be moved to SourceForge or some other collaborative development environment at the discretion of the Project Lead.
