I've been really pleased with the enthusiasm of attendees in the last year, and as such we've managed to have tech meets every month so far this year.
I'm hoping that I can invite London.pm'ers and other UK Perlites to come along and present their talks for YAPC::Europe or OSCON, if they want to practise before the shows. For those of us who can't make it down to some of the great London.pm tech talks, or make it to the conferences, its a great way to get a taste of what they're like.
I'm also hoping, once this Calendar idea for the www.pm.org website goes live, we can drum up more interest for other UK groups, and perhaps do some speaker exchanges.
