In this class I'll take you through two commonly used approaches to using SQL databases in Perl code.

First, we see how DBI provides the foundations running SQL in a safe and database agnostic way. We then move on to DBIx::Class - Perl's most popular database framework (a.k.a "Object Relational Mapping" or "ORM") which presents the data as objects and keeps SQL at arm's-length.

For this course you should be comfortable writing Perl and SQL. As soon as you sign-up for this course, please send me an email and I'll give you a 3 month enrolment in Geekuni's online Perl Essentials course so that you can be sure you're on top of Perl and ready for class!
