POE is a framework for creating multitasking programs in Perl. POE's flexible event system lets applications perform several tasks at once, simulating the effect of threaded or multi-process applications. With hooks at several different levels in the system, POE is amazingly flexible and adaptable to a wide range of projects. The core system comes equipped with a large number of components useful for task coordination and networking. There are also scores of pre-built modules hosted on CPAN.
Josh will present on the basics of POE and give examples of POE driving event-based and networked systems.
