Submission + - BBC creates 'Perl on Rails' 2

Bogtha writes: Long-time users of Perl for their public websites, and having successfully used Ruby on Rails for internal websites, the BBC have fused the two by creating a 'Perl on Rails' that has the advantages of rapid development that Rails brings, while performing well enough to be used for the Beeb's high-traffic public websites. This is already powering one of their websites, and is set to be used in the controversial iPlayer project as well.

  • I thought it was called "Catalyst."

    Seriously, though, what the hell can their MVC framework do that Catalyst can't do a hell of a lot better?

    So what OS is this run off? Presumably MS Win XP?

    Isn't it weird how their headers say Red Hat and Apache 2 but their directors say there are only 200 linux users in the UK [that's hyperbole] ... everyone who uses that site is a linux user.

Biology grows on you.
