7:00-7:45 Presentation | What's New with Perl? | Allen Rout, Daniel Westermann-Clark
Perl is a stable, cross platform programming language.
It is used for mission critical projects in the public and private sectors.
It is Open Source software, licensed under its Artistic License, or the GNU General Public License (GPL).
Perl was created by Larry Wall and version 1.0 was released to usenet's alt.comp.sources in 1987.
PC Magazine named Perl a finalist for its 1998 Technical Excellence Award in the Development Tool category.
The Perl Journal estimates that there are over 1,000,000 Perl users and more than 200 local Perl user groups on six continents.
Allen Rout works for the Open-Systems group at the University of Florida. Part of his responsibility is backing up lots of data - truck loads in fact.
Daniel Westermann-Clark is a Web Developer in the Webadmin group at the University of Florida. When he is not stuffing content into "the series of tubes" and making it pretty he likes to help with the UF enterprise calendar project.
Have you done something interesting with Perl? Bring it to the discussion.
