With the advent of OS X, Apple Computer has a truly excellent computing platform. Excellent BSD-based underpinnings with a pretty GUI on top of it. But, alas, Perl programmers live on the command line and don't get to experience it. No more! By using the open-source Camelbones framework, Perl developers can quickly and easily build graphical interfaces to their perl applications. Jim Thomason will provide a quickstart approach to building your applications and pointers to quickly learn more.
Jim Thomason has been working as a perl programmer in the Chicago area for the last 6 years and has been fortunate enough to always have that as his primary job responsibility. Of course, he's also been a Macintosh user for the past 10 years, and developing for that platform is a great source of enjoyment as well. Items you may recognize him from are Mail::Bulkmail, Text::Flowchart, or Carp::Notify (all on CPAN), the Basset framework, or Fish Bowl for OS X.
