Mojolicious::Guides - Mojolicious guide to the galaxy

We are constantly working on new documentation, follow us on Twitter, GitHub or join the official IRC channel #mojo on to get all the latest updates.

If you are new to Perl, we recommend Learn Perl in 2 hours 30 minutes for a quick introduction, or the Modern Perl book, freely available in many formats. Both are excellent introductions to the language. For more books and documentation, check out

Before starting with the tutorial below, you should take a look at the wonderful Mojocasts, they will give you a general overview of what Mojolicious is all about.
