The Perl Geek Code

Michel Rodriguez

Track: Perl Conference 5
Date: Thursday, July 26
Time: 2:45pm - 3:15pm
Location: Grande Ballroom B

The talk will describe the content of the Perl Geek Code and how Perl scripts are used to generate the various descriptions/forms/CGI's files from a single XML source.

The Perl Geek Code is currently (Jan 21st) in version 0.1. It is similar to the generic Geek Code but allows Perl hackers to describe themselves in various ways: Core Hacking, Perl Skills, Community, Typically Perl (poetry, obfuscation...), Other Languages, OSs...

I will describe the current code and ask for input for the next version of the code.

The Perl Geek Code is described in an XML file, from which an HTML description and various forms and CGI scripts are generated. I will show all the scripts as a practical (OK, fun) use of XML.
