We all know how great Perl is, but what about people outside of the community? What does Perl do for them?

In this talk I'm going to show how Perl, Catalyst, and Moose have been key components of mission critical systems we've built for our clients, and why we couldn't have done it any other way.

As case studies, we will see how national UK retailers and financial institutions have benefited from Perl, and how concepts such as pluggable Catalyst applications have been developed to improve code reuse and speed of delivery.
