I am coming just because of the great food in Köln!
Of course I agree with you: when coming to a Perl
Monger meeting is at least as important to meet
like-minded people as having the opportunity to
learn something. I am also hoping that by coming
to such meetings, I can help motivating people to
come too, to learn something, to teach something,
to do a bit more for the community. But meeting people I like is #1.
