Unmissable keynote talk: 20 years of making a living with a ‘dead’ language
Mon, 23-May-2022 by
Perl stalwart, Ruth Holloway, is giving this year’s keynote talk. She’s written perl for 21 years and is enjoying a solid career out of it, even though the person who taught her said the language was dead! Really? Yes! The language isn’t doing too bad, and as she says “Perl’s an awfully lively zombie!”
Travel along with Ruth through two decades of the joys and sorrows, the best and the worst, of making a living with Perl. She’ll show that Perl can continue to have a life far past the time when so many say it is ‘dead’, and look at how current users and maintainers of perl can help encourage and mentor the new generation.
Ruth has attended Perl conferences for the last ten years, speaking at all but one of the in-person conferences. Here she steps back up to the mic with this humorous, nostalgic, and thought-provoking talk. Don’t miss it - starts 09:45 (CDT), Wednesday, June 22.
