Based on the response to my call for presentations, I'd say that we don't have a lot of Mojo users in our midst.  Also, we were going to team up with another user group for this meeting, which will have a lot folks who are new to Perl.  I think a "getting started" presentation is actually what we are looking for here.

In some ways, but the routing is different and certainly the philosophy behind dependencies is quite different.  Since a lot of wheels go reinvented, it's good to be aware of some of the differences.

I'd be very interested in seeing something like this.  How long would you like to speak for?
