Bio

English
Mark Keating is an odd male with roughly four decades of chronological competence in his girth. He is married to Leigh a girl of great patience and unsurpassed kawaii-ness. They both live in Lancaster, UK, conveniently since they are wed, with their sons, Benjamin and Elliott, a cat called Darwin and various tropical fresh-water fish.

Mark Keating stumbled sideways into the magnificent world of Perl by way of linguistics, literature, a publishing company and an undefined close association with Matt Trout.

He is the the managing director of Shadowcat Systems Limited a software development company specialising in Perl and modern web technology; secretary of the Enlightened Perl Organisation; chair of the Perl Foundation Marketing Committee; member of the tpf steering committee; member of the Perl Advocacy Group; one-half leader of NorthWestEngland.pm.

He is responsible for feats of adminion munging such as the organising the London Perl Workshop since 2008. He is a neophyte evangilist of modern Perl and an advocate of Enlightenment thinking.
