In this session Nandor will describe the various tools he uses in politics, including a Perl program to access voter information in a proprietary top-secret Republican voter database called Voter Vault, and a Perl+MySQL program to analyze precinct-level canvassing data from the county auditor, as well as various other interesting technologies.

Chris Nandor


Chris Nandor, a.k.a. Pudge, is known to some as the Mac Perl guy, to others as that guy who voted 40,000 times in the baseball all-star game, and to others as that guy who serenaded Presidential candidates during a CNN debate. Chuck Norris was honored to meet him.
