The Perl Debugger - quick and cheerful

RichardFoley (Unfortunately, RichardFoley can't come)

I would like to do a quick walkthrough of what the Perl Debugger can do for you. Firstly covering the simple commands to get people up to speed, and then a few slightly more advanced commands to keep people interested. Probably 30 mins or so.

I did some of this at the Austrian Perl Workshop in Vienna, and it seemed to go down well - though the audience may have other opinions...?

Stealing CPAN

Simon Wistow

(?? Mins)

At the special effects company where I work we use a bewildering number of different languages under the philosophy "I don't care what it's done in, just get the film done before the premiere". Development was a mess. So I implemented a CPAN-a-like. For 20 odd languages.

This is what I learnt.

The Decline of Perl?

KarenPauley

Short Talk (20 min)

Is Perl on the decline? Sometimes it seems that there are fewer Perl jobs this year than there were last year and that even on popular Perl mailing lists the topic of conversation isn't really Perl. Are we seeing a move towards being more concerned about the things we can produce rather than the tools we use to produce them? Or is Perl really everywhere and we just don't feel the need to talk about it as much?

This talk would cover some of things I have been thinking about regarding Perl in the last year.
