Multi-paradigm languages like Perl can absorb programming practices from all over the programming map and the more languages you have at least a nodding acquaintance with, the more ways you have to crack your particular nut, skin your particular cat, or carve up the turkey of a problem you’ve been presented.

I’ll discuss some techniques and ideas I’ve stolen from my messing about with other languages, and show you how to cultivate your own plundering habits.

This talk will not be delivered while talking like a pirate for forty minutes. It will, however, be delivered while bearded.
