Our Friends the Utils was written in 2012, how time flies when you’re having Perl! Both the language and modules have been updated in a variety of ways, leaving us even more things to not re-invent for creating clean, usable code.

Scalar::Utils & List::Utils were great when they came out, then we got List::MoreUtils. The result was a whole lot of Perl code nobody had to write. The last decade has seen advances in Perl and the modules, giving us even more things not to re-invent. Catch is that too many people don’t know about these or have time to keep up on how they change. This talk looks at some changes in Perl, advances in the modules, and ways to use them for creating concise, readable, fast code.

I've been working with Perl since the 1990's, using it for everything but salads -- texture isn't quite right. Most of my work with Perl has been with web back ends, financial data, bioinformatics, sysadmin/DBA utilities, ETL, automation, and occasionally flying a quad-copter.
