Reinventing 4-Wheel Drive
Building a mod_perl MVC Framework from Scratch

Perl has frameworks. Lots of frameworks. Ever thought it might not have
enough? Here's your chance to learn how to build yet another web MVC
framework from scratch using mod_perl, Apache, and a few of the usual
suspects. Although perhaps not something you'd want to do in the real
world, this talk will cover how to minimally support features such as:

    * persistent sessions and cookie management
    * taking advantage of mod_perl's hooks into Apache request phases
    * controller registration
    * persistent database connections
    * switching output type quickly and easily
    * setting up unit and integration tests

Gryphon Shafer is the owner of Golden Guru, a software development
company primarily using Perl.


If you are so inclined, please come to the pre-meeting at the Elephant &
Castle pub on 5th & Union. We'll be there from 5-6:19PM.

Meeting Location

Pizza and Beer will be provided at the meeting.

413 Pine St, Suite 500
Seattle, WA  98101

Contact: Jackie Wolfstone - 206-491-8072

The building is just south of Westlake Center. Enter on 4th Avenue, near
Pine street. The entry is near the Dog In The Park hotdog stand.


Due to all of the shopping around us there is plenty of parking
available in garages, but it can be hard to find street parking in
the evening.

See you there!
