Over the past couple of years the SDL Perl bindings have gone through a complete rewrite, making them modular, stable, faster, multiplatform, 1:1 compatible with libsdl and fixing several memory leaks while at it.

"Simple games, easy. Complex games, possible."
In this talk I'll discuss some of the sugar layers being developed on top of SDL Perl, including game loops, widgets, physics engines and full-fledged frameworks for easy game development.
