Moose for "web 1.0" types

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

Greetings monks,

Here is a (possibly frequently asked) question about this Moose thingy: Did someone ever write a "before moose/after moose" cheat-sheet-type list?

Background - I am very well versed in all the old-school perl OO techniques (including the horrific inside-out objects), I understand multiple inheritance and what MRO is and how e.g. C3 works. What puts me off in the Moose tutorials is all the CS-y terminology (role, trait, decoration, etc etc etc). Thus I am looking for some sort of map that can tie my existing knowledge with the "new way of doing things".

    For an intro check out Moose Unsweetened. It compares the Moose and Pre-Moose way of doing basic Perl OO. It doesn't cover roles etc, but the Manual and Cookbooks are pretty thorough

    In my opinion, the best way to go for a comprehensive yet friendly discussion of how to do things the Moose way is Dave Rolsky's Moose::Manual.

      Role and traits are the same thing.

      For some definition of "traits" that is. To clarify, Traits were the original idea developed by the Smalltalk people and which I implemented in Class::Trait. In Moose however we use trait differently, it has come to mean "role applied to an instance" and sometime specifically to a meta-level instance.

      Roles weren't introduced by Moose

      Exactly they were one of the many features we borrowed from Perl 6 :)
