I'm not sure what the scariest thought. The fact that Perl is 25 years old or the fact that I've been using Perl for well over half of the time that it's been around.

So let's look back over that 25 years in about 25 minutes. There were high and lows, good times and bad, successes and... er... less successful things.

It's possible this talk may not be entirely serious.
