  • Well Perl Mongers is part of the Perl Foundation so Allison's keynote should include news about Perl Mongers. If it doesn't, well that's because she always asks me for an update about a month before she is due to speak and I always end up replying to he about two hours before she is due to speak :(

    Other than those organisational failings (which I'm working on!) if there is anything else that you think that Perl Mongers groups can be doing to help newcomers to Perl conferences then I'd love to hear them.

    • Personally I would rather see it as a separate keynote on it's own. If only to highlight the involvement of the Perl Mongers. I would like to see the groups themselves shout up and say what they've been up to, so that a speaker (whether that's you, Allison, or anyone else) simply compiles them into a summary for the past year.

      I wouldn't say there are any organisational failings, it's just we (group leaders) don't advertise what we do beyond our own locale, and it would be nice to hear how the groups are growing, reducing and working around the world. It would just help to raise the profile of user groups to anyone who is coming to a conference who isn't aware of just how big the user comunity is.

      I've added a PerlMongerBOF [] page to the YAPC::Europe wiki, which I hope will be of use to anyone who wants to find out more or is looking for some help and advice. I found it useful at OSCON 2000, so hopefully others will find this useful too.
