Jacinta Richardson will be giving a talk, described at LCA as:

   As with many programming languages, it's very easy to find Perl
   code that can best be described as "write only". Cute tricks, short
   variable names, inconsistent spacing, dubious reliance on default
   arguments... Even without the added challenge of a whole extra
   embedded language (regular expressions), some Perl programs deserve
   to be referred to as line-noise.

   Yet Perl is a beautiful, expressive language that can be used
   successfully by novices through to experts to achieve powerful
   results; and, with a little extra preparation can be easy to read,
   fun to work with, and a joy to maintain.

   This talk will provide a lightning tour of the current status of
   Perl's best practices.

Lightning talks will follow, and no doubt some of us will retire to the 
Standard Hotel on Fitzroy Street afterwards.
