DBIx::Class is a relatively popular database access toolkit, however years after its inception many developers still see it as a mysterious monolithic black box. This brand new talk is an attempt to explain DBIC and related libraries from an architectural standpoint and provide clarification for most of the design decisions/warts/inconsistencies.
A basic familiarity with databases and the dbic API is a plus, however the talk is structured to captivate the imagination of simply curious bystanders and/or hard-core ORM-haters :)
