[yapc] When Wrong is Better

chromatic will be giving a talk at YAPC::NA_2012 that he describes as:
     Perl 1 was a quick and dirty tool intended to solve problems with
     minimal ceremony. Perl 5 continues that proud tradition and extends
     it with our amazing CPAN.

     Yet sometimes our amazing tools aren’t what we need. Sometimes we
     make more work for ourselves. Sometimes the monolingual purity of our
     conventional orthodoxy gets in the way.

     Sometimes solving a problem the best way (performance, ease,
     simplicity, safety, schedule) means doing it the wrong way.

     I’ll show examples from real projects, deployed to real users, and
     explain why we chose to do things the wrong way. Potential examples

     * HTML parsing
     * Database updates
     * Caching and the lack thereof
     * Avoiding rework
     * Error handling
     * Queueing
