The Perl Renaissance

Project: Perl

The Perl Renaissance is in full swing. Object frameworks and syntax have been undated, web frameworks are easy and powerful, and modules are easy to manage and install.

* Overhauling Perl's Object Oriented framework with Moose.
* Using MooseX::Method::Signatures for beautiful classes.
* Building web applications using Dancer
* Not worrying about web servers by using Plack.
* Critiquing your code with Perl::Critic
* Write amazing regexps with named captures.
* Install new modules quickly and easily with cpanminus
* Manage Perl installations easily with perlbrew
* A whole swag of new features with perl 5.10–5.16
* Much, much more!
