Back in the early years of the dynamic web, Perl was the de-facto choice of language. It was so ubique that people associated it with CGI. For that, even today, Perl suffers from a bad image. Even though, under the visible surface, there are strong powers leading to a much better future. In the last couple of years a new bread of frameworks appeared in the Perl world. They are all based on the PSGI standard that rhymes to WSGI and Rack. In this presentation we will see a couple of examples for writing PSGI ( http://plackperl.org/ ) and Dancer ( http://perldancer.org/ ) based applications.
