Modern Perl projects and their surrounding communities have developed in the years since the release of Perl 5.0: the continuing evolution of Perl into a more object orientated language; the growth of projects creating features developed for the, as yet unreleased, Perl 6 to enhance Perl 5; the practice of looking at other languages and learning from them; the culture of stable, test-driven releases that have more compatibility with their predecessors; are some of the features of this development.
This talk will give an introduction to the idea of an Enlightened Perl and the Enlightened Perl Organisation and its aims. It will discuss the importance of uniting corporate with community and how this affects the development process. The presentation is not a technical discussion it is a cultural perspective.
