This is the succesor of the talk “20 things you might not know about Perl,” that has been given at several other conferences and proved quite successful. So by popular demand here is its follow up.
The talk shows several features of Perl you might not have known that existed, that are being (ab)used to run a program that was designed never to be able to run in the first place… It’s a high paced, humourous, and entertaining look at Perl’s slightly less obvious features.
I’m the VP of Operations at Krux, supporting a platform with over 4 billion requests per day with a tiny Ops team. Every bit of the AWS stack is automated, monitored & graphed, with maximized resilience and minimized cost.
In a previous life I ran the Ubuntu Server group at Canonical and the Database group at RIPE, which is responsible for all the authoritative IP address data in Europe, the Middle East & Asia.
I’m regular speaker at conferences like OSCON, Devoxx, Surge, Puppetconf, etc where I mostly speak on dealing with AWS Operations from all angles.
