  • CPAN and related applications
  • Web application frameworks (Mojolicious, Dancer, Catalyst, ...)
  • Moose
  • PSGI / Plack
  • "Modern Perl"
  • Applications of Rakudo Star
  • APIs for cloud services (Amazon, Google, Rackspace, ...)
  • DBIx::Class, other ORMs, NoSQL libraries, ...
  • Functional programming

If you send a proposal, please fill in as much information as possible about yourself in your profile, after having registered.

As for past editions, an introductory course to Perl is already scheduled.

  • 40 minutes: for complex or detailed talks; also ideal for most discussions.
