Liverpool - talk on "Readable Perl", Tuesday 27th May

[ #36488 ]
I only recently discovered GeekUp, a very loose grassroots tech/social meetup society in North West UK -- I think that this idea -- a very loose organization based in a number of towns, with no single technology focus, is probably ideal unless you're in a large city that can really support multiple tech groups. So I didn't expect everyone there to be a massive Perl fan, and of course I got some gentle teasing about Perl being unreadable... and so of course I ended up volunteering to do a talk on "Readable Perl"...

3345 Parr Street, Liverpool, 27th May
People like to claim Perl is line noise, with its sigils and regular expressions. But a lot of the features that make it possible to write, yes, truly awful, unreadable Perl, also let you write clean, maintainable code too.

  • those $%&* sigils!
  • There's More Than One Way To Do It
  • strings and data structures
  • map, grep, first class functions
  • metaprogramming and the CPAN
  • modern Object Oriented programming with Moose

If any perlmongers are in the area, it would be lovely to see you!
