Perl Mongers BOF
A BOF to offer help and advice to anyone planning to start a Perl Mongers group, as well as leaders and members of existing groups. Several long standing group leaders and Perl community members will be at the conference, and this is a chance for new or smaller groups to get advice on what things can help them increase the profile of Perl and Perl Mongers in their local area.
A second objective for the BOF is to allow any group, who might be interested in organising a future YAPC::Europe conference, to ask questions and get advice from current and past organisers. The future of YAPC::Europe depends on groups willing to host the event, and while once organisers were tasked with everything, there is now a support network of previous organisers, who are willing to help and relieve some of the burden of organisation. Come along and meet them and get inspired :)
Unfortunately I would have liked to have scheduled this for Thursday, but with many wanting to get to the evening event, it might be better to try and arrange for Friday. Are people going to be about after the auction? Perhaps we can chat together at the dinner anyway - Barbie.

- nadim khemir
- Dave Cross (davorg)
- Jeremiah Foster (jeremiah) - we have nothing in gothenburg and I would like advice on how to start a lively pm group.
- Diego Kuperman (diegok)
- Salve J. Nilsen (sjn) - If there's time, I'd love to discuss a little about "making interesting things happen"... I may have some points to share from my experiences arranging the Perl-QA Hackathon (plus some related stuff :)
