Dancer, one of the web frameworks written in Perl, became quite popular despite its relatively young age. It is simple to start with, yet powerful enough to run larger web applications.

Aside from being easy and straightforward, Dancer is really flexible. The plugin ecosystem provides features for your web application without further ado. Hooks allow you to extend existing functionality without changing someone's else code. On top of that you can pick your session, template and logging engine from a number of alternatives.

This presentation teaches you first the basic steps of dancing like adding routes, building your templates and using plugins. To make you more sure-footed on the dance-floor, the next topics are hooks, error handling, logging and Dancer scripts. Finally, typical Dancer deployments and a sneak preview about Dancer 2 finish up our Dancer Academy.
