What I expect from a Web Framework

I find if you use Catalyst features correctly (although with a handful of plugins) you can achieve better separation of concerns and avoid fat controllers and models that only work under Catalyst. Out of the box its dependency injection features are a little skimpy but serviceable. However most people don't take best advantage since the existing public docs and examples really don't promote that approach very well.

About domm

user-pic Just in case you like to know, I'm currently full-time father of 2 kids, half-time Perl hacker, sort-of DJ, bicyclist, no longer dreadlocked and more than 34 years old but too lazy to update my profile once a year. I'm also head of Vienna.pm, no longer maintainer of the CPANTS project, member of the TPF Grants Commitee and the YAPC Europe Foundation. I've got stuff on CPAN, held various talks and organise the Austrian Perl Workshops and YAPC::Europe 2007.
