I did my first Template Toolkit conversion in bug 3030. It's still counterintuitive to me that the views are linked to the document hierarchy in DW/Controller files that are buried deep in cgi-bin, instead of some sort of top-level HEY LOOKEE HERE easy to find place, but hey, whatever works.
I also defined my first hook, because I noticed that the index page only linked to the files in dw-free, and there were a bunch more in the same directory in dw-nonfree that needed to be linked as well. Hooks are the simplest way to tell a program: "Whoops, hey, if that code over there is loaded, pass this here data through it. If not, forget I said anything." It's also a good example of a concept I learned years ago from customizing Tinyfugue; I learned most of my basic programming skills on MU*s before I ever learned Perl.
