Docker can be useful as both a development and execution environment. One problem, however, is that the O/S choices often include un- or badly-optimzed perl executables, minimal or out of date perl and modules, and are difficult to update because of platform dependencies.

The fix is to roll your own perl distribution, optimized and packaged for your own environment.

This talk covers the basics of building perl, producing the Docker image and launching it as a container.
