I did a talk on Facebook apps with Mojolicious at Adelaide Perl Mongers last month.

I haven't found enough tuits to finish making the slides useable (ie screencasting the live demo parts).

Once I do, it will be on http://adelaide.pm.org

Mojolicious is great for one-page (or more complicated) apps - the no non-perl dependencies, small footprint and built in web server make it perfect for many hosting environments.

If you're interested please beat me over the head to provide me with sufficient motivation to finish the slides off!
