The data is crap
You can find more information on the speaker's site:
This talk is just a reminder that in the Real World, Perl is sometimes used not for shiny new Web n.0 projects, but instead to process data of variable quality (the many nuances of crap) and make some sense of it.
The goal of this talk is to inform programmers, especially beginners, of their likely fate, and to give them a few pointers about tools and techniques to use in slightly less cutting-edge projects that the ones that are usually shown in public. Present workshop excepted of course.
