Or how to maintain the peace with DevOps.

Being available on just about every *nix server you might use was once was a huge win for perl. Over the years though it has become a maintenance nightmare and a huge point of contention between development teams and development operations (IT, TechOps, NetOps, or whatever you're used to calling the group in charge of the hardware and data center). So stop using system perl, or even caring if it exists.

This talk will review some of the considerations for solving this problem and the tools chosen for use by one team for a real enterprise platform currently running in production. The source project has multiple releases, using multiple versions of perl for different version or environments of the project, all on the same system, with managed libraries for each. It is far easier to set up and use than you might expect, and can be adapted for a number of deployment models.
