You can find more information on the speaker's site:


Yandex is the leading internet company in Russia, operating the most popular search engine and the most visited website.
Yandex.Direct is a system for the placement of text-based advertising.
Yandex.Direct web interface is a mature Perl project with lots of users and data, a big codebase and a large team.

We always have lots of new features to implement, maintenance problems to solve and legacy code to refactor.

We (Elena Bolshakova and me) would like to give a brief talk on how we do it. Using Perl, of course.
