Perl programmers building web applications need good tools on the client-side, too. In this talk we'll go into depth on what the MochiKit tool set provides. In short: it makes JavaScript suck less. MochiKit isn't a framework which means it interoperates with other JavaScript code and application frameworks very well.

If you've been building web applications without good tools for AJAX, visual effects, color management, DOM manipulation, or event handling, this talk is for you! MochiKit goes one higher order step further with lots of functional programming idioms built right in.
