    • Post-Apocalypse Perl (Saint Perl 2012) Using Perlin a completely hostile environment (c) Alex Chistyakov, http://alexclear.livejournal.com
    • Who are we?➢ We came in peace➢ http://vk.com/av➢ A free cloud antivirus for the masses➢ A band of Windows zealots from RSDN➢ Most of us do not like Linux and GNU➢ Well, I am an exception
    • Who am I?➢ Proud to be a Linux user since 1997➢ Proud to be a Perl user since 1999➢ 1999 – CGI.pm and other fun stuff➢ 2000-2008 – Java (well, Java is not always fun)➢ 2008-2010 – mod_perl and other fun stuff➢ 2012 – Apocalypse, operations engineering and other fun stuff
    • Our goals?➢ Strategic: to control the Universe➢ Not so strategic:➢ to parse the output of various 3rd party tools such as AV scanners➢ to run some custom Linux daemons
    • Why Perl?➢ Well, because there has been a Perl hacker in the team➢ So we have got a bunch of Perl-based daemons➢ And Perl-based parsers for custom logs
    • Is Perl dead?➢ The short answer is: “No!”➢ But our Perl hacker has left the team➢ SUDDENLY Python lovers have emerged!➢ Okay lets rewrite everything in Python for the reason of uniformity, “code clarity” and so on➢ Let the war begin!
    • Is Perl dead?➢ But not everything can be easily expressed in Python➢ Even if you are a Python lover➢ Regular expressions are hard to write➢ And some of them are almost impossible to write➢ Especially in Python!
    • Conclusions➢ Perl, MF. Do you speak it?➢ Who knows Perl can control the Universe➢ Long live Perl!
