	Talk:	Awesome things you've missed in Perl!  (Paul Fenwick)


Awesome things have been happening in Perl recently; so many that even if
you've been paying close attention, you may have missed a few. In this talk
we'll examine some of the coolest recent technologies for Perl programmers,

* Overhauling Perl's Object Oriented framework with Moose.

* Making everything a first-class object with autobox.

* Slashing your error handling code with autodie.

* Building fast, readable and reusable regular expressions with Perl 5.10.

* Bundling and building stand-alone applications using PAR, the
  Perl Archiver.

* Astonishingly good profiling with Devel::NYTProf.

* Playing MineSweeper automatically with App::SweeperBot.

Knowledge of Perl is nice, but not essential to appreciate the contents of
this talk.
