Perl Black Magic unleashed - Obfuscation and Golfing
This one is practically ready. I have 160 slides that took me 40-45 minutes to go through, last time. I'm gonna take some of them out (about 20-30, at least) and probably substitute them with some more slides on the Golfing section.
I would like to include a section on Secret Operators, but I would need and extra 20 minutes for that... I know this talk will be the last of day 1, so there's no one else waiting for me to finish in order to start the next talk, but going on just wouldn't be fair, now would it?
Perl Blue Magic - Creating Perl modules and Using the CPAN
As I said before, there's a couple of reasons why this talk is blue, and I will go through them on the talk itself.
Anyway, I recently wrote a guide on creating Perl modules, and am working on a new one (Perl Modules: Beyond Basics), so that means I know what I want to talk about.
But here comes a problem: Perl White Magic is fun because it has evolving code and a joke between each two problems. Perl Black Magic is also fun because people laugh at the tricks I show and there are also a couple of jokes. Both these talks are pretty straight forward, but...
What am I gonna do for the Blue one?
My current idea is that of having slides and coding at the same time, actually creating a module (and possibly submitting it to PAUSE, if there's connectivity) during the talk. But so far that's it...
I need a great idea
