Greetings folks!

We've got a new meeting scheduled. Jeremy Zawodny will be speaking at
craigslist on Mojolicious on Tuesday, July 14th.


Jeremy Zawodny will be speaking on how craigslist is implementing the
Mojolicious web framework.

For years craigslist has employed a collection of mod_perl handlers
under Apache 1.x and, more recently, Apache 2.x for generating 99% of
pages on our site. However, in the last year we’ve begun to experiment
with the Perl Mojolicious web framework for building new services as
well as transitioning some services off mod_perl.

This presentation will provide a brief overview of Mojolicious and the
features that make it attractive, where and how it fits in at
craigslist, lessons learned in integrating Mojolicious with an older
code base, and a discussion of what it takes to migrate existing
services from mod_perl to Mojolicious, including representative code

Finally, I’ll discuss what it’s like to track Mojolicious development
from the “outside” and remain current as it continues to evolve.

Jeremy is a CPAN author, enjoys flying planes, and sending electronics
into outer space.
