Hi Dan,

Yes, Dancer is indeed a great program. The Dancer community is growing rapidly and have been very supportive.

My first Dancer project was a simple Dropbox clone for a company in New York. Based on that experience
I decided to make the switch to Dancer with one of my bigger clients, The Bureau of International Information Programs (IIP)
in the Department of State. A front-end for online resources along side with an LDAP based backend for account management system
for some 40K plus users: https://elibraryusa.state.gov.

Another site now powered by Dancer is IIP's eCommerce site that was first setup using MiniVend/Interchange over 10 years ago.
In October 2011 a complete overhaul in design and using Dancer was launched: https://eshop.state.gov.
The shopping cart's related coding can be found on Github and CPAN (search for Nitesi).

The progress of IC 6 unfortunately slowed down, as I need to do a lot of IC5 related work these days.
There is a project coming for migrating an IC5 site to IC6 (frontend only) in the next quarter.

Any help with building up a demo for IC6 would be much appreciated.
