Please join us in a presentation held by John Napiorkowski of Shutterstock on Moose and Perl at 7pm at Shutterstock. Please arrive early for pizza, beverages, and mingling.
The topic of the presentation is:
Everything you want to know about post modern programming in Perl/Moose but were afraid to ask.
Perl has enabled Shutterstock's explosive growth over the past 6 years. Using Perl and agile development methodologies, Shutterstock has become the world's largest micro stock website. In this discussion we will look at Moose, one of the quintessential Modern Perl open source projects. Moose is a post-modern approach to rapidly design awesome code. It blends the best research academia has to offer on the subject of object oriented programming, with the practical, 'get it done quick' nature we expect from a widely used, dynamic language. As a developer using Moose for five+ years, the speaker will review some of his triumphs as well as gaffs, and share what he has learned on the path toward Object Oriented Programming nirvana.
