I've been working on a "digital dashboard" (computer rendered instrument cluster) for my DeLorean for quite a while now, but the project really picked up speed and finally reached the finish line once I started using Perl and stopped trying to write everything in C. Talk will include brief overview of all the pieces of the project, synopsis of the software challenges involved, discussion of the technologies chosen, and focus on how perl sped up the development process.
