So you want your code to run faster. You found the part that’s taking the time, but now you don’t know what to do with it. This talk is for you. We’re going to discuss some of the low-hanging fruit of optimization — a few small things that will make most perl programs run significantly faster.
We’ll cover common bottlenecks, efficient usage of popular CPAN modules, and a few personal tricks picked up from years of trying to squeeze a little more speed out of perl applications.
