John SJ Anderson

from Infinity Interactive

John is the VP of Technology for Infinity Interactive, a technology consultancy and bespoke software development shop. When he's not madly trying to keep up with the pace of change in Javascript development, maintaining Perl modules, or tweaking his Emacs config, he likes to play around with new languages like Swift and write about himself in the third person.

Perl5? Isn't that language dead? No, wait, wasn't it replaced by Perl6? Neither is true, but if you haven't paid attention to the Perl world since a year beginning with the digit '1', you've missed a lot of great new stuff! This talk will get you up to speed on Perl5 in 2018, with a focus on new language features, best practices, and even why you might want to learn Perl if you don't know it.
