Perl for CS Grad Students

You can find more information on the speaker's site:

As a PhD student in Computer Science, I crunch numbers all day long. While Perl's a great language for all sorts of things, it's pretty slow at math. Nevertheless I couldn't do my research without Perl; it's the glue that binds all my other tools together. In this talk I'll describe how I use Perl in my research. Topics I'll discuss will include implementing graph algorithms with, using Perl as a scripting language for little languages like graphviz and gnuplot, and using to create a database-backed front-end to Matlab.
