The SF Perl Mongers next meeting will be on Tuesday March 22nd, at
7pm.  Jonathan Swartz will be introducing Mason 2.0.  RSVP at Meetup -

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 last month, 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.

Jonathan Swartz, the original author of both Mason 1 and 2, will
present Mason 2's new  architecture and improvements and show how it
fits into the modern Perl web development  universe.
