Everybody enjoyed it.
The guy I kept saying looked like a Perl monger I had met only once and whose attention we tried to get several times was, indeed, the Perl monger I knew, which means there were at least eight people there for the meeting (he had another programmer with him).
Some people who didn't show up actually asked how it went and look eager to the next meeting.
Meetings will now be held on the first Wednesday of each month, because, er... because that's gives us an excuse for next week's meeting O:-)
Same time, same place. Yes, we know it's a holiday in Portugal, so what?
