Perl is being actively used to develop large scalable applications to deal with the major, hyped and popular social networks. Thanks to great advances on Perl libraries and 3rd party modules, one can build new, smoking, bleeding-edge technologies, based on the social networks' available APIs.

Not only PHP or Ruby are being used to develop 3rd party applications for these social networks, also Perl. Heavily. And if you are not using Perl to do so or are skeptical about it, this is the perfect talk for you to attend.

There will be two main sections on this presentation. One is focused on developing for a social network, as a 3rd party application; second, developing a social network using Perl, which Web modules, libraries and technologies, mainly under the Modern Perl paradigm.
