[sf-perl] Reminder: Perl 6 Study this Sunday

Just a quick reminder: I'm experimenting with getting folks
together to play around with Perl 6 on Sunday mornings at the
Cafe over in the Oakland Museum. I don't know about you, but I
keep playing around with Perl 6, then putting it aside and
forgetting what I know. I thought doing something like this might
get me over the hump with the language of the future....
Perl 6 Informal Study Sessions
Sundays, starting on April 15
10am - Noonish
"Blue Oak Cafe" at the Oakland Museum
1000 Oak Street (at 10th Street)
near Lake Merritt BART
(this comes with the perl6 code)
Part of the idea here though, is that I want to play around with
using this place for gatherings... the cafe is open to the public
without paying a museum admission, it's quiet with lots of table
space, and it's right by a BART station, and taken all together,
that's pretty unusual.
The meetup page is here:
An RSVP is appreciated, though not at all required, of course--
and in fact if anyone here felt like working on something else,
or just dropping by to hang-out, that's fine too.
