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

Today most modern computers have CPUs with multiple cores, but the traditional programming paradigm lets us still program with single processes using just one core most of the time.

This talk gives an overview of the possibilities Perl 5 and various CPAN modules offer for EASY parallel programming, where you don't have to care about synchronization etc. but can accelerate some of your heavy computing programs with just a few extra lines of code.

We will also look at which types of problems can be easily parallelized that way, and which typical problems would require you to take care of synchronization.
