confirmed ‎Medium Perl‎ Lightning talk


English was my idea. Sorry about that.

I've been writing Perl since about 1997. I wrote a few books and I run a lot of training courses and workshop sessions. You might have been on one of them.

Other than Perl, I'm very opinionated about databases, the validity of HTML and SEO.

Outside of Perl, I might be found at a gig, watching Doctor Who or MCU stuff or researching my genealogy.

Somehow, I've become a Quora expert on the British Royal Family.
