Talks

A Website For Yancy - A Practical Introduction to Mojolicious

This is a 45-minute talk based on my series of three posts for the 2018 Mojolicious Advent Calendar: A Website For Yancy, A View To A POD, and You Only Export Twice. This talk gets into a bit more detail about how to get started using Mojolicious.

I gave this talk to Chicago.PM in January 2019. For a future version of the talk, I intend to explain route destinations a little better and explain more about the template syntax.
