Object Perl track, Data::ObjectDriver -- "A relational object driver that doesn't suck" - Ben Trott

There are a million abstract layers out there -- we threw them all away and built a new one and we are betting on it to power millions of users. Here's how it works, why it works, and how to use it.

Data::ObjectDriver is a pragmatic toolkit for building scalable database applications, built from years' experience stuffing objects into relational stores. The module plays well with various database server software, caches objects in your application and with memcached, and eases partitioning for horizontal scaling.
