Special guest Henry Van Styn will join us On-Air ( for a personal tour of his amazing web application toolkit RapidApp (

RapidApp is an extension to Catalyst ( - the Perl MVC framework. It provides a feature-rich extended development stack, as well as easy access to common out-of-the-box application paradigms, such as powerful CRUD-based front-ends for DBIx::Class ( models, user access and authorization, RESTful URL navigation schemes, pure Ajax interfaces with no browser page loads, templating engine with front-side CMS features, declarative configuration layers, and more.

We'll start with pizza and drinks around 6:30pm and then go live with Henry around 7pm.
