Due to an unfortunate mixup, Sydney.pm missed holidaying New York Perl Monger Ross Lonstein by 24 hours, the fleet-footed New Yorker already on the road to Melbourne. Only two mongers gorged at the Chinese Noodle restaurant, Shop 7/8 Quay St, Haymarket. After asking the only non-Chinese eater, "Erm, are you Ross Lonstein of New York City?", Stephen and I hatched our evil plan for reviving Sydney.pm over a huge plate of spicy noodles, washed down with a Starbucks Caramel Macchiato (espresso coffee mixed with caramel syrup topped with foamed milk and yet more caramel syrup). Well, we discussed several possibilities, but don't really know what to do.
Any tips on reviving a Perl Mongers group? I heard Gabor gave a talk about the leading Perl Mongers groups at YAPC::Europe; does anyone have a reference to that talk? Who are the leading Perl Monger groups and why are they successful?
