    Hi Bennie,

    I am very happy that you found the Perl community to be friendly. And I fully share your appreciation on Wendy, an incredibly lovely person, indeed. And I am also happy that she pushed you on stage during the lightning talks, I think that RPerl deserves more visibility.

    I'm looking forward to seeing you soon at the next Paris Perl Monger social event. And I'm also looking forward to meeting Will Braswell when he comes to Paris next month.
