  Speaker:  Eric Wilhelm (aka "me")

Parallel and Distributed Perl

  I will present techniques and tools for parallelizing and distributing 
tasks across multiple cores or nodes with perl (and mostly on *nix.)  
The focus is on clean architecture, cross-platform clustering, and 
removing the distinctions between SMP and clustering.

  * basics:          models and laws
  * control:         forking/ssh/daemons
  * communication:   pipes/NFS/IPC
  * management:      waiting, polling, killing
  * non-blocking:    iterators, cursors, IO::Select
  * bonus:           unionfs+NFS
  * if time allows:  threads
