You can find more information on the speaker's site:
Perl's Class::DBI module makes it really easy and convenient to treat database tables as classes and rows as objects.
I will show how Class::DBI builds on top of Perl's standard DBI database interface, and in turn on top of the Ima::DBI abstraction layer. Finally, I show how Template::Plugin::Class lets you report on databases without writing any Perl code.
This talk is aimed at people who have some experience of Perl and databases, but want to discover interesting, efficient approaches for doing more with less code.
