I'm new to the list since I just moved to austin.  However I'm pretty bullish on the future of catalyst and definitely want to meetup with like minded people.  If also be into coordinating with developers of other frameworks particularly around plack middleware development since I think it's a natural place for all of us to coordinate.

Of course any discussion of Catalyst would include DBIx::Class and Moose. In the process of creating the group, I got a listing of people in the Austin area that list Perl as one of their interests. It was a surprisingly large list, around 45.

How about teaching classes: intro, actions, database interactions, forms, etc?  I get the feeling that most of the Austin Perl VIPs have moved on to other things. Personally, I'm not really interested in Perl 11 or Perl 6. I mean... I find it interesting, but I need help learning and using the practical stuff that is in production now.

If anyone else thinks there is enough interest that could warrant creating a meetup group, I would be happy to help with it. Otherwise, maybe there would be enough interest within this group to get started with an investigation into Perl web frameworks.
