Dancer is an effortless and effective micro-framework for writing web applications. It has become very popular among the Perl community and gathers more and more users everyday. Its rising community is vibrant, friendly and open-minded.

This presentation will explain how Dancer came into life, what it is about and how one can start using it for production-ready applications. The talk will go over a brief history of the project, its main principles and will end with a collection of interesting plugins.

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.
