You’ve been asking for it, we heard you, and we did it! You can now deploy Perl on DotCloud.Perl hacker Phillip Smith taunted us about the lack of Perl support; but more than our investor’s money, the real keys to the Perl stack have been the very insightful feedback and ideas of another major contributor to the Perl community: Tatsuhiko Miyagawa. Without his comments and advice, we probably would still be wondering how to get it done properly. Any PSGI-based framework will work out of the box, and legacy FastCGI-based apps can be made compatible super easily. Thanks everyone for your patience – this took more time than planned, but it’s finally there, so feel free ride the Camel!
The stack with the fastest usage growth so far has been Node.JS, but we trust the Perl Mongers will give them a run for their money!
