Presentations πŸ”— 1608661368  

Presentations put forward by our members Group Projects πŸ”—

Some members Houston Perl Mongers Group have worked together on projects that we would like to share with the community at large. Information about these projects will be listed here. This page lists both active projects and proposed projects.

Active projects each have their own page. The page contains information about the project including the Project Lead/Organizer, a list of developers working on the project, any reference materials, and links to download code associated with the project. This should work as long as each project remains relatively small. Any project that grows too large to maintain on a single page could be moved to SourceForge or some other collaborative development environment at the discretion of the Project Lead.

Subtle Magic: Moving to Dancer2/DBIx::Class/TT πŸ”— 1555804800  

April 2019
Presenter: Ruth Holloway
Read the documentation, we're told, but there's always more to learn. When I started working with Dancer2, DBIx::Class, and Template Toolkit last fall, I'd seen the basics, but I found out very quickly that there's much more to learn. The capabilities of this stack can influence application design from the ground up database tables, all the way to the final frameworks you might choose to use on the frontend, and not all of those repercussions are immediately clear from merely reading the documentation! In this talk, we'll learn about some of the strengths of these modules and demonstrate how their capabilities can be leveraged to help you work faster and write great web-based applications.
