Portland's marketplace of ideas... in Omaha

In Portland tomorrow night:

Robert Buels presents "The Amazing Miracle of DBIx::Class"

Rob will give an introduction to and overview of DBIx::Class. It's an object-relational mapping framework, much better than the old Class::DBI, and it will make your life easier if you are currently writing a lot of SQL in your Perl.

In Omaha tonight:

Randal "merlyn" Schwartz (who lives in Portland) presents "Forget the ORM! Persistent Data with non-traditional databases."

What an Object-Relational Mapper is, why it sucks, and a couple dozen alternatives (most open source, many with Perl bindings).
