Suppose you have a new project, and suppose part of that project involves server-side web programming. Suppose the client would also like a RESTful interface as well as the web interface.
Assume that you don't have complete control over who else to hire for the project, but that you can specify sufficient familiarity with Perl and web programming.
What resources would you give to the other programmers to help them design, implement, and maintain a RESTful web application written primarily in Perl? Assume that you don't have time for a two day immersion class (because you'd have to teach it, after all), and that you can hand out the RESTful Web Services book and tell people "Overlook that silly Ruby code."
