Examples of Modern Perl

In the spirit of re-tweeting, this is a short post to highlight some great examples of “modern perl”. (I’m using the term modern perl very loosely, not referring specifically to any one book, website, or module or organization.)

Firstly I’d like to highlight a couple of recent posts by Jonathan Rockway:

* Unshortening URLs with Modern Perl (also available here). An interesting example application built with modern perl modules like MooseX::Declare, MooseX::Getopt, HTTP::Engine, AnyEvent::HTTP, TryCatch, and KiokuDB.

* Multimethods. Another great example from Jonathan highlighting the combined power of MooseX::Types, MooseX::Declare, and MooseX:: MultiMethods.

Then, from his work at the BBC, Curtis “Ovid” Poe has given us a great series of thoughtful posts on the benefits of replacing multiple inheritance with roles in a complex production code-base. The slides of his Inheritance vs Roles talk is a good place to start. Then dive in to the blog posts back here and work your way forward.

I ♥ modern perl!
