I’m a well-known Perl expert, better known online as Ovid. I specialize in large-scale, database driven code bases and wrote the test harness that currently ships with the Perl programming language. I’m constantly trying to create better testing tools for the Perl community.
I sit on the Board of Directors of the Perl Foundation and run a consulting company with my lovely wife, Leïla, from our offices in La Rochelle, a medieval port town on the west coast of France.
I speak at conferences all over the world and also do private speaking engagements and training for companies. Currently I’m a specialist for hire, often focusing on complex ETL problems or making developers more productive by fixing test suites and making them run much faster.
