It's 2009, but too much Perl code and tutorials and books are stuck in 1999. While the core may progress slowly, the CPAN is still Perl's shining gem -- and the source of solutions to countless Perl problems.

The Perl community as a whole has learned tremendous lessons over the past 15 years about how to write effective, powerful, concise, and elegant code. What works in 2009 is very different from worked in 1994, or 1999, or 2004. This talk introduces some of the newer ideas, idioms, modules, and trends that you need to explore to take full advantage of all that Perl 5 has to offer in 2009.

Topics covered will include testing, Moose, Devel::Declare, autodie, roles, autobox, and more.
