Enterprise Perl
James A.†Duncan, CIO, Fotango

Track: Perl
Date: Wednesday, July 28
Time:†11:35am - 12:20pm
Location:†Salon G


The difference between Perl and Enterprise Perl is not just a name, which is a pity, because, like the next guy, I hate the word Enterprise. Enterprise Perl is about a slightly higher bar in what is required in the area of maintenance, scalability, and reliability. Itís about Call Centre operations, vast customer databases, and product management systems. Itís slightly different in approach, because the importance of this sort of thing for organisations goes beyond the need to keep one box running. Itís about keeping the business in business.

This talk exposes these differences, why it means you have to be approach your job differently, and how to structure your Perl code to make it more capable for the job.
