Where did we come from? Where are we going? When am I allowed to rip the heads o
ff my users and trample their bodies into the pre-cambriam dirt?

At least one of these questions might be answered during this talk, as we meander from the dawn of (perl and CPAN) time through to the present day.

Covering the perl5 ecosystem in all its mad glory, discussing the progress and process of the development of the language, the libraries and the community, we'll sprinkle raisins on the hysterical and salute the geniuses and the insane.

By the time the agony abates you may have lost a little sanity but you'll have gained a bright and clear idea of the state of the new perl enlightenment, where we're going and how we're going to get there.

You might even understand where the name of the talk came from too.
