You can find more information on the speaker's site:

"What would you get if you crossed a camel and a snake? Cake, of course!"

In this talk I'm going to compare and contrast Perl and Python solutions to the same problem, looking at coding style and readability to see what Perl can learn from "the dark side".

P.S. No snakes will be harmed during the presentation of this talk :-)
