codehack has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Can anyone suggest me the book for web-service in Perl? Also can you give me the example/company/application where Perl web-service is used.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

      Or maybe not. The book is 9 years old.

    Book recommendations would depend on what technology you intend to use. For example many people use Catalyst for websites, in which case there are a number of Catalyst books to chose from.

    As for who uses perl for websites, a lot of companies do. For example if you take a look at you will see that have this open vacancy for lots of perl devs, so it would be reasonable to assume that they use perl for their website. There are plenty of others, and I have been approached by around a dozen of them, but they are more local in nature.

    A newer option that I enjoy using is Mojolicious. I don't believe there are any books on it yet, but a fair amount of online documentation. A simple example web service from the Mojolicious web site looks like this:

    # RESTful web service with JSON and text representation get '/list/:offset' => sub { my $self = shift; my $numbers = [0 .. $self->param('offset')]; $self->respond_to( json => {json => $numbers}, txt => {text => join(',', @$numbers)} ); };

[Corion]: Maybe the solution would be a tablet (with pens), like the Wacom tablets, but you still need good software and need to know how to operate it well in an interactive setting ;)
[ambrus]: Corion: the solution depends on who for. Some non-math presentations need to show lots of graphics or photos, with fine details and color. For those, blackboard or overhead transparencies aren't so good (yes, you can print on transparencies, but there's s
[ambrus]: ome quality limits), but film projection or computer projector is fine.
[ambrus]: A minority of math presenters are traditional and don't want to operate a computer. For them, handwritten overhead transparencies and blackboard are fine.
[Corion]: BTW, has anybody seen the Microsoft Surface Studio thing live?
[ambrus]: Some will operate a computer, but want to operate crazy unusable android-like GUIs. For those, printed overhead transparencies or simple slide editors and maybe even tablets are fine.
