I was just talking with Guy about the possibility of doing an  
introduction to Catalyst - short introduction with a demonstration, a  
brief introduction to MVC, hack up some live code and question time.

Leif also had the idea of doing a review of some complex perl modules  
- such as data encryption - this would be an advanced topic, but  
could be very interesting.

We also talked about the idea of doing a beginners to intermediate  
talk before each main session (say 15-30 minutes) and we thought that  
doing it around a Perlmeme topic would be a good way of promoting  
perlmeme and development of perlmeme.

Microsoft is not the answer. It's the question. And the answer is no.
