Duration: 45 minutes
Target audience: Lightning

In this talk I'll be covering the topics that I find are most often greeted with "that's cool, I didn't know I could do that"] by DBIx::Class users when presented as a solution to their problem on IRC, mailing lists or on-site:

Reaction: Continuations, components and reflection in web MVC

Date: Wednesday June 18, 2008 09:05
Duration: 45 minutes
Target audience: Lightning
Reaction is an application metamodel built using the Catalyst MVC web framework and the Moose metaprotocol and object system. Component-based UI models work for the desktop but how do you apply them to the web? Can continuation based design help and what do you do about human friendly bookmarkable URLs and minimising stored state? Why are we dependent on scaffolds and can reflection and a metaprotocol help? Matt presents one possible set of answers and the thought process behind the implementation.
