For us hackers, developers, IT geeks, sysadmins, or enlightened citizens, the holy Terminal is the best and only acceptable mean of interaction with the computer.

Curses is a powerful but very low-level library to design graphic interfaces on text consoles. Sadly, there are only few CPAN modules to abstract a bit Curses and try to provide a better way of creating curses GUIs.

Enter Curses::Toolkit, the new modern toolkit to write old-school terminal based GUIs ! It's not 100% complete, but provides a lot of features you'll find nowhere else, like GTK-like boxing and packing, mouse support, asynchronous animation, and event driven programing. Oh and it's full of fun, as this talk will be, hopefully.
