Leon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.

[ #38843 ]

Last Thursday we held another London Perl Mongers technical meeting. The theme was "Less code" and I started by showing off Elevated, a 4KB graphics intro by rgba which recently won first place at Breakpoint 2009. Yes, 4KB, including the music. It's all procedurally generated using flat mesh displaced with a Perlin noise-based procedural vertex shader, with textures computed procedurally and even camera movements are generated in the GPU. In 4KB!
