First off, let me say I think CPAN Day is a great idea, and I am happy to take part in it!

If you are building a website using HTML::Template and your data model is still fluid (or you just want to quickly test different values) you can lay out your data in JSON format and use the ht_render command to feed it to your template without having to change any of your Perl code.
