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 sometimes even performance.

This session follows on from last year's class, exploring still more coding practices that can help you produce robust, maintainable, and efficient Perl programs.
