Dynamic HTML 5 using jQuery for Perl Programmers

Pete Krawczyk will be giving a talk at YAPC::NA 2012 that he describes as:

This talk is intended for audiences who are familiar with Perl and have some experience with HTML and CSS, but little or no JavaScript/jQuery experience. Source code will be provided before the talk; attendees are encouraged to download and follow along.

We’ll migrate a to-do list app that allows adding, deleting and rearranging of tasks.We’ll start with a pure Perl/CGI/HTML4 implementation and migrate it to a dynamic Perl/jQuery application using HTML5. Along the way, we’ll discuss JavaScript, JSON and XML, event-based programming, AJAX and asynchronous requests.

I'd like to attend but can't. Will it be recorded?

Please do! Video hosting should not be a problem nowadays, with YouTube and all. And this will help Perl by reaching to 100x-1000x more audience than is possible with a physical conference.
