There's More Than One Way To Do It!

But this year, one is more popular than another.

Next year, that may have changed.

And sometimes there's more than one way but most of them are wrong.

And consistency can be a good thing too.

This talk takes an irreverent, high speed look at emergent, emerged and
obsoleted standards in perl, and talks about how we need to think in order
to transition between them, and to code for the ages (or at least the
maintenance programmer). Touching on the view from a web framework maintainer,
the Enlightened Perl extended core project and other efforts, Matt tries to
explain why standards are good, why we already have them, and why most perl
programmers still haven't actually noticed that.
