The Talks

Colin Newell - failures

This talk will look at a new module distribution called "failures". What it is and how it works.

Barbie - Creating Excel Spreadsheets with Template Toolkit

A brief introduction to Excel::Template and Excel::Template::Plus. In a recent project I needed to write a plugin that could output the data as an Excel file. Previously I've done this talking directly to Spreadsheet::WriteExcel. However, these two new distributions help to provide the templating power of Template Toolkit, and interact with your choice of spreadsheet engine on your behalf.

Barbie - Introducing the UK Co-Ordinators

At the 2013 London Perl Workshop, six of the UK Perl Monger group leaders got together to talk about colaboration, guidance and supporting each other's groups. Out of this came the UK Co-Ordinators. This is a quick introduction to who we are, why we started it, and what you can do to get involved.

Tony Edwardson * - RemoteLib

Use CPAN modules with no installation required.

* = Guest Speaker
