Welcome to the Perl TV
Speaker: Doran Barton speaker
Doran Barton's presentation is a brief introduction to DBIx::Class, Perl's incredible ORM module.
The Salt Lake Perl Mongers group, recently revived, currently meets the second Tuesday of each month in space provided by Bluehost.
The presentation starts with a short review of what is DBI. Then he gives an overview of DBIx::Class and then shows how to build the database part of a small blog engine.
The slides are also available to make it easier to follow the presentation.
