Welcome to the Linux.com newsletter for Monday July 23rd 2001.

What a week for open source! With both the O'Reilly conference and the Perl conference July is a good time for learning new stuff and meeting new friends. Linux.com is, of course, no exception. This week is Developer's Week at Linux.com and we have a whole big mess of premium content for Linux and open source developers of all kinds.

This week (July 23rd through the 27th) Linux.com will be hosting live community events every single day with developers of various technologies we hope will be of interest to you. In addition we'll be publishing pages and pages of free documentation on everything from Perl to Python to GTK+.

Below you'll find the Developer Week schedule, so if you're near a computer (and who isn't?) drop in each day, check it out and even join the fun.

Plus don't forget to read last weeks articles in case you missed them, links below as usual.
