Perl Community Essentials

How to get the most out of the Perl community?

How can one get the most out of the Perl community? Good question! I'm so glad you asked.

In this presentation, Salve J. Nilsen attempts to give a concise and information-rich overview of what the Perl community can offer, what to expect, and how to get the most out of it. The intended audience is everyone who wants to be ore useful and effective with Perl, and isn't already familiar with the community.

In this talk you'll find answers to questions like...

  • Where and how do I find Perl people to have a beer with?
  • How do I find out which modules are cool, powerful and the the easiest to work with?
  • How can I find useful software, good recommendations and what the current best practices are?
  • What are the most useful community services offered, and how can I get the most out of them?
  • How can I build a positive reputation within the Perl community? 
  • How can my employment opportunities and pay grade be improved with the help of the Perl community?
