Single Page Application with Perl Dancer

About the Book

Perl Dancer is a modern, light-weight, route-based web framework written in Perl. It has been around since 2009. It is robust and can make it very easy to build solutions.

This book assumes basic Perl knowledge and some familiarity with the web. It starts from the beginning and takes you all the way deploying your application on a cloud-based service.

Dancer makes it very easy to build a REST-based API in front of a Microservice that can be used by other services in the company or that can be the back-end of a Single Page Application. Reading the book will help you understand these techniques and technologies. Doing the exercises that come with the book will ensure that you can implement such a service.
