[Pdx-pm] Web Framework Panel -- April meeting next Thursday

Hi All,

We discussed this on IRC, but we need more volunteers for the panel 
and/or we could have more of a round-table.

The panel will look at the developments in web frameworks over the last 
few years, in particular: looking at what has been made possible by 
Plack/PSGI vs the models of running directly on CGI/FCGI/mod_perl and 
how new frameworks have taken advantage of this.  There may be 
questions about templates, deployment, middleware, or some fundamentals 
about how all of this fits into HTTP.

 Ben:      dancer
 Clay:     converting CGIs to Plack apps
 Jonathan: mason as your dancer templates
 Rob:      starman and Plack

Please chime in if you have some experience to contribute or would like 
to pose a question for the discussion.

Can anyone talk about recent developments with Catalyst and how that has 
changed with Plack?  Other frameworks?  Continuations?  Will just 
saying that Jonathan and Rob are coming to the meeting make it so?

Also at this month's meeting, we will have a raffle for a free ticket to 

"Insert random misquote here"
