Using a cascaded if/elsif/else instead of individual methods looks terribly awkward to me. I think that's part of what OO and methods (or even subroutines in general) are supposed to help us avoid!

    Yes, the implementation is poor, but it is meant to be a simple demonstration. I tend to choose dispatch-table type patterns for such things, and if the normalization/etc. were more complex I might even have "private" subroutines to deal with the attributes.

    My post is more targetted toward interface than internal implementation; still, your point is a good one.

[choroba]: I mean I haven't used DBIx::Class nor M:S, only Moo
[1nickt]: Haha, I was learning about Linux filesystem trees trying to understand how Moo fits.
[1nickt]: I just got my feet wet with some DBIC coding this last week. I feel "meh" about it so far. It was pretty easy to add a sub to the DBIC class to filter search results ...
[1nickt]: ... in the calling code ... $rs = $rs->maturity(" stable");. But I don;t enjoy feeling that far away from the SQL and the DB, really.
[1nickt]: The same project (CPAN Testers API) is using experimental signatures (and therefore 5.024) ... which is what replaced Method::Signatures , afaict.
[1nickt]: But the new $job is on an older Perl and therefore using M::S, the syntax of which looks clunky to me, so far.
