10 years ago the popular view was the perl always ended up with an
unmaintainable code base and that it was not very easy to implement.

I'd suggest something to show how the use of CPAN makes it easy to
produce big projects without writing lots of code and that the code
produced is easy to maintain. I'd also consider doing something on top
of Plack and a popular web framework.
