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

I know Perl, but new to Moose. I have heard that it is the next best thing since sliced bread. How should I learn that? What should be my milestones?

    I found Moose's own documentation was all I needed. Moose::Cookbook should get you started, and there's Moose::Manual when you want to know more.


    Leon Brocard (Acme) has organised a printed version of the Moose manual. There are more details in his Use Perl journal.

    I couldn't find the link, or remember who wrote it, when I originally posted this node.

    Moose is a huge thing to swallow all at once. I found sartak's Intro to Moose presentation the best intro. I especially like his 'Side-by-Side' comparisons. I've often thought about putting together a Moose intro talk but I doubt I could do a good a job as Shawn.

    I have a couple of columns I wrote on Moose: part 1, and part 2. They're a bit dated now, but a good gentle introduction.

    And the funny thing is, I needed a quick reintroduction to Moose for a project recently, so I googled "moose perl". My columns came up pretty high on the list, so I read them to remind myself. {grin}

    The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119.

        There's also a nice presentation by Dave Rolsky, with exercises
