Didn't know about the freenode channel,  I'll add it to my launch list.  I hang most of the day on catalyt and catalyst-dev on irc.perl.org if anyone wants to catch up.

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. 
>> I wonder if this is a topic that would interest anyone. Is anyone using Catalyst? Anyone willing to make themselves available for questions? 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.  
>> After getting through the process of creating a Meetup group, I decided it was not something I could afford right now. Especially, if the interest level is uncertain. 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.
