Target audience: Any
Language: English

Booking.com is a fast growing company selling hotel rooms, using the
LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl) stack. This talk gives an overview
of what kind of company Booking.com is, and which role Perl, and Perl
developers play.

We will show who the various classes of users are (external, internal),
who our "customers" (departments developers develop for) are. We'll
give an overview of the (open source) tools and Perl frameworks we use
in our daily developer life.

And we'll show how Booking.com gives its developers free beer (we're hiring).
