I would assume that "web 101 with Perl" would show a way to do it that
might be more than you need for a trivial app, but that scales into a
"real" app when called for.

Analogy: for a trivial object oriented program, I'll just use bless
and write my own accessors.  But for teaching "how to write OO apps in
perl", I'd use Moose or Moo.
