This Month's Talk

Mason 2: True OO templating for the web and beyond

Mason is a Perl-based templating framework for generating web pages and
other dynamic content. Over the past decade it has been used to generate
thousands of web sites large and small, including Amazon.com, Target.com,
Salon.com and del.icio.us.

Version 2.0 of Mason was released in February, twelve years after its
initial incarnation.  It has been rearchitected and reimplemented from the
ground up, to take advantage of modern Perl techniques (Moose, Plack/PSGI)
and to add long-desired features and syntax.

The original author of Mason will present Mason 2's new architecture and
improvements and show how it fits into the modern Perl web development

Area, doing web consulting for Hearst and other companies. He is the author
of several CPAN projects including Mason and CHI.


If you are so inclined, please come to the pre-meeting at the nearby
& Castle pub on 5th & Union (see map link below). Come enjoy some friendly
conversation and perhaps a favorite beverage (they have a full restaurant
too). We can usually be found at the back under the TV near the rear
that goes up into the hotel (if you enter through the front doors, just go
straight back past the bar). We'll be there from 5:00 pm to 6:19 pm.

Meeting Location

520 Pike Street, Suite 1800
Seattle, WA  98101

The building is just East of Westlake Center. Enter from Pike Street.


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. There is
also a parking garage in the building, but check the rates and closing time
(subject to change due to downtown events)!

Attendees will need to wait near the elevators in the lobby and a Marchex
employee will provide access to the 18th floor where the meeting room is
located. If no one shows up to let you in, call (425) 533-2964 to let them
know you're in the lobby.

See you there!
