T20 is a buzz word in cricket world, which represents the short format of the game. Especially the twists in dying minutes, makes it more challenging. Similarly in software, the last minute changes end-up in challenging targets. Lateral thinking is vital in winning those moments. We will share few.

Generally, need is considered the mother of invention. True to that, during tight targets we always ended-up a lean solution that we did not think of or ignored for long. Those challenging & committed times; our mind transcends in all direction, breaks traditional barriers to get a solution. Those times we often felt of a partner, travels in our wave length will be a great gift & boost to accomplish it. In our case, perl’s flexibility & multifaceted character given us the power to solve the non-linear challenges.
Some of it: 1. A data munging operation to capture the missed business leads from 1000s of email 2. Implementing an out-of the box outgoing email capturing in a shared hosting account 3. Producing demo document pdfs in 1/10 of the time for a sudden & surprise business proposal 4. Updating a product image based website with 1/3 of resource with automation of image naming, image resizing, image uploading 5. Revamping a website after 15 years with 1000 of images, gallery update automation 6. Chinese Cyber Incursions & counter actions 7. Website Migration between different CMS engines
Perl’s way for every skill level given way to implement the solution like chasing a tough score game in an incremental way with ups and downs. Most of the scripts now in open-source. We will share the implementation cases and I hope it will give an acumen for similar non-linear & constraint scenarios.
