If you're not yet comfortable with references, modules, objects, or
testing then you might want to borrow this from the Wellington.PM
library. Drop me a line by return email to enter a 'priority queue'.
The next meeting is in two weeks.
Sam in going to give us an advanced screening of a talk he'll be doing
at YAPC::Eu later in the year:
Moose - It's the new Camel!
Moose is a module for building Perl classes, that gives you many of
the powers of Perl 6's object system in Perl 5 - including Roles
and subset types. Despite being a young module, it is rapidly
becoming the 'accessors module' of choice for the discerning module
This talk will give a tour through Moose - its features and how to
use them, and show a design process example of an application
written using Moose.
Finlay will be introducing us to DBIx::Class and telling us about his
adventures using it with the Catalyst web application framework.
