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

Perl has amazing support for data structures.
Arrays and Hashes are first class citizens, and can be combined with built-in functions to form the most frequently needed structures.
Multi-level structures make complex data manipulation *easy*.

This class will give an introduction to the basic data structures and the ways to manipulate them.
It will include topics like:

* Queues, Stacks, Sets, Bags, Dictionaries, Records
* push, pop, shift, unshift, splice, keys, sort
* References, named and anonymous
* Dereferencing referenced referents
* AoA, AoH, HoA, HoH, AoHoHoA (if time allows)
* Carpentry, and sawing your fingers off with power tools.
