I’ll be offering a one day Intro to Moose class at YAPC::NA 2011 in lovely Asheville, NC. To register, log in to the YAPC::NA site and then go to purchasing page. If you haven’t registered for YAPC yet, you can buy your conference ticket at the same time too.
Intro to Moose
Join us for an interactive hands-on course all about Moose, an OO system for Perl 5 that provides a simple declarative layer of “sugar” on top of a powerful, extensible meta-model.
With Moose, simple classes can be created without writing any subroutines, and complex classes can be simplified. Moose’s features include a powerful attribute declaration system, type constraints and coercions, method modifiers (“before”, “after”, and “around”), a role system (like mixins on steroids), and more. Moose also has a vibrant ecosystem of extensions as seen in the variety of MooseX:: modules on CPAN.
This course will cover Moose’s core features, dip a toe into the meta-model, and explore some of the more powerful MooseX:: modules available on CPAN.
Students are expected to bring a laptop, as you will be writing code during the class. You will also be provided with a tarball a week or so before the class is scheduled, which will contain a directory tree skeleton and test files.
