Deploying Perl Web Applications

Cory Watson will give a talk at YAPC::NA 2012 described as: 

Perl web applications have been running for a really long time.  What started as CGI scripts has evolved into frameworks and middleware with JavaScript frontends. Perl itself has evolved with Perl 5 barreling along.  Our modern applications also use lots of modules from CPAN.  How can we use all this new, awesome stuff without making for a deployment nightmare? In recent client work we’ve tackled this problem and we’ve come up with a pretty good solution.  

In this talk we’ll take the journey from concept to deployment. We’ll discuss the advantages, limitations and lingering problems.  We’ll cover local::lib, cpanm, Dist::Zilla, carton, pinto and how much I hate all of them. We’ll culminate with a self-contained, repeatable, upgradeable Perl application and only a few unsolved gotchas.
