  3. #133: All Things Perl With Curtis “Ovid” Poe - The Changelog

    This week, we spoke with Curtis “Ovid” Poe. He shares how he got started with Perl, what Perl is really good at, why he doesn’t expect everyone to love Perl, why Perl doesn’t get no respect,

    the difference between Perl 5 and Perl 6, why the Perl community doesn’t like marketing, and more.

    “Not everyone is going to be able to get into every language. Perl, in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, was rightfully called the duct tape of the internet. It’s kind of sad, because it’s a fabulous language.” – Curtis Ovid Poe @ 3:46

  4. The Perl Jam 2: The Camel Strikes Back [32c3]

    The Perl Jam 2 The Camel Strikes Back

    tl;dr EXPLOIT ALL THE PERL. AGAIN. After last year’s Perl crackdown, I decided I have to take the Perl abuse to the next level. This time I focused on Perl’s core, or more specifically, the referencing mechanism, and shattered the security of most Perl CGI projects in the world.

    With more WATs, more broken concepts, and more wildly popular 0-days, we will finally prove the Perl language is a broken concept, one that stood tall for way too many years.

    Presenting „The Perl Jam: Exploiting a 20 Year-old Vulnerability“ at 31c3 opened a Pandora’s Box full of Perl debates and controversies. Many of these debates originated from the Perl community itself, with unforgiving arguments such as „vulnerabilities are the developer’s fault“, „RTFM“ and „I really hate the Camel abuse in the presentation“ that were mostly directed at me.

    This is why I’m proud to say that this year I finally got the message: Finding vulnerabilities in core modules is not enough. I need to prove there are problems in the most fundamental aspects of the Perl language, or the Perl community will keep ignoring the language many issues. So I did, and we are going to analyze it in a presentation filled with lolz, WATs, and 0-days, so maybe this time something will change.

    Join me for a journey in which we will delve into more 0-days in Bugzilla, an RCE on everyo…

  5. Walt Mankowski (waltman) - Scientific Programming with NumPy and SciPy

    NumPy and SciPy are a collection of packages for scientific computing in Python. Together they extend Python into a powerful open source data processing and prototyping environment many scientific programmers are choosing to use instead of expensive, proprietary commercial systems such as MATLAB.

    This talk will be an introduction to scientific programming in Python, focusing on the NumPy and SciPy packages. Learn why Python is kicking Perl’s butt at scientific programming, and what (if anything) we can do about it.
