  • Nice presentation deck you've got http://mag-sol.com/talks/db/ [mag-sol.com] [mag-sol.com]. Nice to a tutorial something go from naive SQL to Class::DBI.

    Thanks. Glad you liked it. It was quite a rush getting all that into thirty minutes. Quite a lot of it had to be "here are some interesting things that you should go away and look at later".

    Is the logo supposed to be an Onion and a Lightbulb?

    It's the Perl Foundation [perl.org] onion logo.

    If I read the source right, this was an S5 presentation? There seems to be a built in delay between page transition and next strip-tease bullet shown, no matter how fast I click. The styles that are actually used are in external CSS files, so what's with the "perltidy style" definitions, I don't see them used?

    You're right that it's an S5 presentation. But it was created from a POD file using spod5 [cpan.org]. I guess that the extra definitions were added by that.

    And thanks for the specific comments on the slides. I'll put them right tonight. Perhaps it's because of the speed I was going, but no-one else spotted them.

    Oh, and regarding errors. I stated clearly that detailed discussions of error processing were one of the things that were cut due to time constraints. When I got to the slide you mention (slide 20) I said something like "this is just an example, please don't use it verbatim, it has no error checking and if you use it like that your bosses will all come after me with very big sticks!"
