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'.

Robots!

[ #7448 ]
Every year the ICFP programming contest comes around and lately it has seemed rather difficult but contest this time seems very interesting. It's about robots and pathfinding and bidding and it's all quite cool. Somehow Elthek and I decided to have a go, programming in Perl. It's quite cool, we've got a little curses program that shows path finding and the little robot going to pick up packages and dropping them where they are supposed to go. We use the A* algorithm (there's a good Java applet showing it off) and everything's shiny. We don't expect to win (we're a small team and we've only just started programming), but we at least expect to get somewhere...
