If you've relied on Google as your main source of information on Perl web development, the words 'arcane', 'insane' and 'CGI' will be floating through your subconscious like a dot-com bubble bath nightmare.

Come to this class for a fun and rewarding experience of learning clean and maintainable modern web development in Perl using the Dancer framework.

While developing a website with dynamic content, you will:

* Learn about Dancer2 as a framework and as a language
* Implement route handlers using sessions and hooks
* Implement views, templates and layouts using Template Toolkit and Bootstrap
* Understand the concept of Model-View-Controller
* Experience structuring code for maintainability
* Experience using object oriented Perl modules
* Be cured of your anxiety triggered by the phrase 'Perl web development'

Prerequisites

Basic knowledge of:

* Perl (no need for OO Perl)
* Bash/Linux command line interface
* HTML/HTTP
* A text editor like vi/emacs/pico

p.s As a bonus you'll get two free weeks to continue your studies at Geekuni https://geekuni.com/
