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

Hi, I'm struggling to express a query in DBIC. I've got the following situation:

table events { id primary key, name varchar } table sessions { id primary key, event references events(id), starts datetime }

I have the appropriate DBIx classes set up, including the proper has_many() and belongs_to() relationships. So each event can have multiple sessions. I need a list of events, ordered their earliest start date. The SQL for this would be:

select, s.starts from events e join sessions s on = s.event join ( select event, min(starts) as starts from sessions group by event ) as t on s.event = t.event and s.time = t.starts

But how do I convert this to a DBIC expression? I'd appreciate your help
