Sorry, the June meeting is (duh) not in May!
Wed. June 11th, 6:53pm at FreeGeek -- 1731 SE 10th Ave.
Speaker: Jay Shirley
Topic: Demystifying DBIx::Class
ORMs aren't mystic, and neither is DBIx::Class. Come to this talk to
learn how to do the basics with DBIx::Class and see some sufficiently
advanced technology that is distinguishable from magic.
In this brief talk, attendees will learn how to create a schema and
manage the data in their database all without touching a line of SQL.
Using only what is available on CPAN, build a database of brewers and
their beers complete with a review system.
- What's an ORM?
- Why are ORMs Scary?
- What makes DBIC Different
- In Perl without SQL
- A Use Case:
- Sit back down. We're only talking about beer in the abstract.
- Beers are made by brewers and distributed by distributors.
(Lots of good relations here.)
- Creating the database
- Writing scripts
And lastly: Beer! The non-abstract sort will be studied at the Lucky
Lab after the meeting.
