  • Doing Perl Right

    by Jacinta Richardson and Paul Fenwick

    You already know some Perl. You’ve read a book, written a few scripts, maybe even a module, but are you sure you’re doing it right? Languages and techniques evolve over time, and Perl is no exception.

    This detailed tutorial will cover many of the best modern and practical techniques in Perl, including:

    • How to start your project on the right foot, and without repeating yourself.
    • How to use Moose for flexible object oriented design, including inheritance, roles, types and coercion.
    • How to simplify your error handling code with autodie, even when using your own exception classes.
    • How to profile your code with Devel::NYTProf, and examine your test suite coverage with Devel::Cover.
    • How to bundle your code and dependencies with PAR, the Perl Archiver.
    • How to gain feedback and enforce coding standards with Perl::Critic.

    Join internationally acclaimed speaker Paul Fenwick, and White Camel Award winner Jacinta Richardson, as they examine some of the best modern Perl techniques you can use today.

    A knowledge of Perl’s basic language features is assumed.

    At 1:30pm to 1:30pm, Tuesday 21st July
