Perl and XSLT: Sucess Stories
Dan Brian, Conceptuary
Date: Thursday, July 25
Time: 2:30pm - 3:15pm
Location: Marina III
Perl is the perfect language for generating web content, thanks to its text processing, simple file and database access, and CPAN repository. XSLT is the perfect language for generating web interfaces, thanks to its XML origins, declarative semantics, and powerful XPath integration. Together, the two complement one another to create an ideal development environment for the enterprise, the Open Source developer, and the research community.
This session explains and demonstrates three custom applications, built entirely with XSLT and Perl.
The presentation focuses on the more insightful Perl and XSLT techniques used in these projects, enabling collaborative coding, high-quality QA, and design-driven development.
- NTT/Verio Control Panel and Webmail System.
The corporate success story of a professionally designed, brandable,
internationalized, and massively deployed webmail system for
NTT/Verio resellers and OEMs, made possible with CPAN and XSLT.
- WaxML - an Open Source, lightweight web application environment.
Web loggers, photo albums, shopping carts, discussion boards. Verbosity
meets one-liners to build the most simple and maintainable web sites.
- Linguana - building an Open Source psycholinguistic lexicon.
Perl retrieves, parses and converts large data sets to XML, while XSLT merges
and transforms XML language data sets and generates complex web-based
