...And I will be giving a talk on Moose, on all the things I've learned using it, and you will get the chance to see some of my most embarrassing code (and get a good laugh at me). Additionally I will quote Tolkien and demonstrate the relationship between the the quest to destroy the Ruling Ring and software development.
Here's the meetup linkage: http://www.meetup.com/The-New-York-Perl-Meetup-Group/events/59990662/
We've hosted a few Meetups here at Shutterstock in the past quarter and they've gone really well. We even hired someone at the last, so bring your resume!
I'm aiming this talk both at people that know and already praise Perl, as well as people that work at companies that need to support Perl but might not be feeling the love. So spread the word around!
