I've kind of encountered this in my own way - until a few months ago, I 
generally thought objects in PHP were relatively pointless - however 
since I've been using Smarty and now more recently Propel, I've really 
started to appreciate the power of using an object oriented approach.

The first (and last) meeting had approximately 18-20 attendees, which 
filled the room. There is a projector screen etc. I'm not sure if 
OpenAdvantage have a larger venue or not.

If we do need a larger venue, we could perhaps inquire about using e.g. 
the Computer Science facilities in bham.ac.uk; or find out what the 
local perl mongers do....

I'm not sure what we'll do if we have more than 20 attendees....
