Matt Trout
Technical Director, Shadowcat Systems Limited

Web site

Matt S Trout was thrust into Perl at the tender age of 17 by a backup accident. Two weeks later he realised that he was in love with the language and has been happily using it for systems automation, network, web and database development ever since.

He is a core developer (and repository admin) for the Catalyst web framework, the DBIx::Class ORM and the Moose metaprotocol and object system, as well as contributing to assorted other CPAN projects.

Matt spends his days leading the technical team at Shadowcat Systems Limited, an open source consultancy specialising in Catalyst, Perl applications deployment and systems architecture. Shadowcat sponsors web, source repository and mailing list hosting for Catalyst, DBIx::Class and a large number of associated projects, and creates and releases open source code both internally and on behalf of its clients.

Systems administrators have probably been using perl longer and more cleverly than developers in a lot of cases, and yet the perl buzz these days focuses around scalable applications development, not fast and reliable scripting. It's time to redress the balance by stealing enlightened tools for systems use too! Read more.
