Perl is a wonderful language. It provides us with smorgasbord of choices when time comes for implementation.
Unfortunately these choices can be frustrating and paralyzing for potential users.
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 projects like 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.
The talk will then enumerate reasons why Moose is So Damned Important, how it makes our jobs easier, and how it makes Perl viable for larger development groups.
