Barely Legal XXX Perl

Location: Portland 256 Level: Intermediate
Average rating: ***..
(3.86, 7 ratings)

This is the succesor of the talk “20 things you might not know about Perl,” that has been given at several other conferences and proved quite successful. So by popular demand here is its follow up.

The talk shows several features of Perl you might not have known that existed, that are being (ab)used to run a program that was designed never to be able to run in the first place… It’s a high paced, humourous, and entertaining look at Perl’s slightly less obvious features.
