Full title (which didn't fit in your text input) - "Why do so many companies re-invent well-known CPAN modules badly and end up writing far too much code?"

As a freelancer I work with a lot of companies and see a lot of code. I'm constantly amazed by the number of companies that ignore well-known CPAN modules and end up writing too much code.

In this talk I'll look at the reasons why these companies don't use CPAN modules and I'll suggest some strategies for fixing the problem.
