You can find more information on the speaker's site:

PET is a standalone application server / WEB programming framework written in Perl. It usually runs as a separate process (daemon), and can be interfaced to basically any modern webservers.

Request reaching a PET-based website are (at least partially) served by the webserver (these are mostly request for static files, e.g. images), and partially by the PET application server (dynamic content -- (X)HTML pages).

If you know Tomcat for Java, for example, then you can imagine what PET is mostly good for and look like -- or you can even think of the language PHP, the Python application server Zope the CPAN module Apache::ASP.

In my talk I would like to introduce PET to you. Why did I think that (another) framework is needed? How to learn PET? What are the most important features of PET?

Besides answering these questions, I would also like to show you some examples of real-life deployments of PET, which are to prove that besides all nice features PET is also extremely FAST.
