  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.

Demystifying DBIC
 - What's an ORM?
 - Why are ORMs Scary?
 - What makes DBIC Different
    - Objects
    - Relations
    - Management
       - In Perl without SQL
    - Deployment
 - A Use Case:
    - Beer!
    - 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.
