I haven't done any web development in perl before today and I started with Mojolicious. I've worked with Rails apps before and that's where I learn about models, views, controllers, routes, etc. I understood what happens when a user sends a request from the client and how that request gets handled and served back by the browser. The Ruby ecosystem has a ton of gems (libraries) specifically tailored towards Rails and its definitely a huge full featured framework sort of like how Perl is such a full featured language.
I've also actually played with other ruby web frameworks like Sinatra. I'm able to say with my experience with other languages and frameworks that web development with Perl and Mojolicious is very fun. I'm new to Perl in general but have fallen in love with its free-form syntax, plethora of operators, expressiveness, clever community, and of course the documentation is unparalleled to anything I've seen elsewhere. The fact that Mojolicious makes it so easy to expose our crafty Perl hacks from our terminals to the web in such an organized, clean, simple, and fun manner truly makes me smile. I do know that Mojolicious isn't the only option out there to do this. I've heard great thinks about Dancer2 and other options as well. I'm not sure what I'll end up building, but maybe I'll share snippets of that journey in due time!
