Best Practice Perl
Damian Conway, Thoughtstream

Track: Perl
Date: Monday, July 26
Time: 8:45am - 12:15pm
Location: Salon F


One of the major challenges of using Perl in a real-world development environment is that Perl's "More Than One Way To Do It" philosophy often means there are far too many choices when it comes to solving a particular problem with the language. When everyone is free to do it their own way, they often do so at the expense of maintainability, usability, and even performance. This half-day course details a range of consistent Perl coding practices aimed at producing robust, maintainable, and efficient control structures, data types, error handling, command-line interfaces, I/O, classes, regexes, subroutines and modules. It also examines the critical issues of code layout, debugging, and documentation.
