Moscow.pm's new leader
The Moscow.pm group has a new leader. Since now this role is occupied by Pavel Scherbinin (Dzirtik).
For a few months Pavel has been organising Moscow.pm technical meetings in the office of mail.ru, the company in Moscow he works in. They managed to have two or three talks for every meeting. I think it was a good proof that Pavel was a good candidate for this position and he would bring a new wave to Moscow's Perl life.
I took the leadership in 2007 and was behind a number of Moscow.pm offline meetings, a big enough number of workshops, conferences and hackathons in several countries. Since 2007 our mailing list became de-facto the ExUSSR Perl mailing list. There were a few monger groups appeared in Russia after Moscow.pm relaunch in 2007. As I am no longer living (but not forever) in Moscow and cannot take part in most of its activities, I think we made a good change :-)
I wish the new leader all the best and would like to see newcomers to Perl who will like the language because of Moscow.pm members' work.
