Birmingham.pm recently updated their site.  For those who haven't seen
it, go take a look.  It's spiffy.

To start the new year off in style, Birmingham.pm have finally 
unveiled their new group website. 


Due to the large wealth of content, and the time taken to update the 
static pages, a new dynamic site was envisioned. The HTML design was 
the work of Birmingham.pm regulars JJ [1] and Chris Marsh [2], with 
the backend design and coding by Barbie [3]. The logo and banner 
image are all JJ's work too. 

Expect to see the content grow considerably as more Birmingham Perl 
Monger related news, reviews and events get added in the future. 

The site has been in development for several months, and is built on
a new website management system called Labyrinth. Labyrinth is written
in Perl and uses the Template Toolkit to render the pages (include our
new ICalendar [4]). The new site is being hosted by The Positive 
Internet Company Ltd. [5], for which Birmingham Perl Mongers are 
gratefully thankful.
