News Coverage


The Camel Goes Kite Surfing

Andy Wardley, Software Researcher, Canon Research Centre Europe Ltd.

Track: Perl Conference 5
Date: Thursday, July 26
Time: 1:45pm - 2:15pm
Location: Grande Ballroom C

This talk describes how Perl helped design, visualize and construct a new kind of traction kite aimed at the kite surfing market. Designing such complex 3 dimensional shapes would almost certainly be an insurmountable task without the aid of the computer. Worry free kite design is best with the right programming language (e.g. memory allocation and reclamation, strict type checking, program compilation, etc). Perl is the best language for getting the job done.
