Dave Rolsky may be offering the one day Intro to Moose class at PPW.
This depends on whether there's sufficient interest to justify
offering it (probably a minimum of 6 students).

If you are interested please add yourself to the wiki.

Intro to Moose taught by Dave Rolsky

Join us for an interactive hands-on course all about Moose, an OO
system for Perl 5 that provides a simple declarative layer of "sugar"
on top of a powerful, extensible meta-model.

With Moose, simple classes can be created without writing any
subroutines, and complex classes can be simplified. Moose's features
include a powerful attribute declaration system, type constraints and
coercions, method modifiers ("before", "after", and "around"), a role
system (like mixins on steroids), and more. Moose also has a vibrant
ecosystem of extensions as seen in the variety of MooseX:: modules on

This course will cover Moose's core features, go in depth on many of
them, and explore some of the more powerful MooseX:: modules available
on CPAN.

Students are expected to bring a laptop, as you will be writing code
during the class. You will also be provided with a tarball a week or
so before the class is scheduled. This will contain the exercises for
the class.

If you are interested in going on the tour please add yourself to the wiki.
