Dancer training at LPW2012

Andrew Solomon again ran a helpful training session at this year's London Perl Workshop, Web development using Dancer which was a hands-on session to introduce Perl newbies to how easy web development can be using Perl and Dancer.

The session covered:

  • learning to use the Dancer framework
  • learning to use Template Toolkit
  • understanding the concept of Model-View-Controller
  • how to structure code for maintainability
  • gaining experience using object oriented Perl modules

There were 16 attendees, and feedback on the course was generally very positive.

Dancer also appeared in the content of people's talks at LPW2012 too, which was great to see.
