WxPerl: What I Learned the Hard Way
OR: How to have a decent and perlish architecture in spite of being
subjected to obscenely verbose reams of C++ documentation, overly
academic examples, slow wikis, and infection misconceptions.
o wxWidgets -- what it is and what it can do for you
o interlude: mac users heckling loudly
o Wx (aka wxPerl) -- crazy, but true!
o dotReader: an open-source e-book reader written in Perl
o getting started / documentation
o cross platform development (aka fun with vnc)
o installation (aka fun with make/nmake/bake/shake/quake)
o getting past getting started
o code generation and why it is a good idea
o event driven OOP -- how to have your cake without eating your hair
o callbacks with closures, methods, and accessors
o packaging and deployment on windows, mac, and linux
o no really, testing
o moose, Traits, and whatever else time allows
All this in a fun-filled and action-packed multimedia presentation
followed by Beer! I know I'll be there!
