Portland Perl Mongers – Modern Web Frameworks Panel
Most classes require prior sign up. Please check in at the front desk when you arrive to let them know you are here for the class. Bags must be checked at the front entrance.
This informal panel / round-table discussion will review and demonstrate what has changed over the last few years since Plack has become the leading deployment/glue technology for Perl web applications.
While Plack/PSGI is a vastly more flexible, maintainable, deployable, and scalable model than CGI, in many ways it is a back-to-basics simplification of the ways in which code and servers interact. It has also led to new web frameworks which allow you to forget about all of those fundamental details. We'll try to look at the overall picture, plus specific examples and discuss use cases and migration experiences.
- Ben: Dancer demo
- Joshua: a second person to answer Dancer questions
- Clay: CGI to Plack conversion
- Eric: server options for testing and deployment
As usual, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab.
