Here's the talk I gave today at the 2008 Perl Mova conference in Kyiv,
link "Getting Started With ExtJS And
I asked how many out of the roomful of people had used Catalyst or
Extent - zero!
I have seen some ukrainian projects made of Catalyst.
Really, it was the first step to create Ukrainian Perl comunity.
I tryed to motivate people to use Catalyst, but they prefer older tools
Anyway i thank you, that you bring Catalyst word to us! :)
Hi Alexander, thanks for your kind words and it's good to know some Catalyst
projects are happening.
The Perl community in Ukraine and Russia seems to be growing well and they
filled all the conference places.
Kyiv is a beautiful city and it was a good break. I hope to return next year
and speak more on Catalyst.
I rented an apartment together with Jonathon Worthington, who spoke on Perl
6 and parallelism, and a Ukrainian perl programmer.
We had a fine time meeting the Kiev.pm and Moscow.pm perlmongers and going
I think Andrew Shitov is planning a first event in Belorus next!

Full video of talks should be online at some point.
By the way, several of the Russian perl programmers commented on the lack of
Perl books available in Russian. They say it is quite a barrier to Russian
speaking people trying to learn Perl and/or Catalyst.
They asked if Jonathon Rockway's bookhttp://www.packtpub.com/catalyst-perl-web-application/book
was available online and I said not.
I got the impression they wanted to run it through the Google
Jonathon - any thoughts on that?
