Moose for Managers: The Remix

THE REMIX: Updated for 2010 with hot new joints.

Perl is a wonderful language. It provides amazing flexibility. Unfortunately for new users – or old users who aren't hip on what we've been up to – it can look like a mess of line noise and yak shaving.

Moose represents a "best practices" approach to Object Oriented Programming in Perl. As the manager of a development team, I have strong opinions on how Perl makes my job difficult and how Moose take away a lot of the pain.

We will start with an introduction to Moose. This introduction is high level and meant to show how Moose can take away a lot of the yak-shaving in day-to-day work. It's suitable for people who are wondering what all the fuss is about Moose or who think it's just another Class::Accessor implementation.

The talk will then enumerate reasons why Moose is So Damned Important, how it makes our jobs easier, how it makes Perl viable for larger development groups and how it's brought a wealth of exciting new features to Perl.
