1:37 SQLite && DBD::SQLite Intro
by Zachary Zebrowski - The MITRE Corporation
SQLite is a small, open source, ACID complaint, database in a single executable. DBD::SQLite is the DBD driver, which installs the database engine when it's installed, with no additional configuration required. Additionally, the talk will mention when to use (and when not to use) SQLite, and why it's my favourite database.

1:42 <30sec
by Lawrence Furnival - Teachers College Columbia University
I wrote a perl wiki viewer that uses kwiki as a development environment. It is called "<30sec" because it makes a multipage web app with draggable lists (thanks to Simon Cozens), form submition and processing through XMLHttpResponse (AJAX), with simple wiki-like markup (i.e. '____' makes a text field with a width of 4 characters), so a complex web app is possible in "30 seconds or less."

1:47 Building City Guide Wikis with OpenGuides
by Earle Martin - OpenGuides
OpenGuides is a geo-focused wiki-based system for developing collaborative city guides. In this talk I will provide a brief overview of how it works and why we think it's cool.

1:53 The Dirty Dozen
by Jason Purdy - Journalistic, Inc.
Dealing with credit cards can be a headache and while lots of thought has been put into secure systems to transmit and store sensitive data, we should just stop! I just want to raise awareness of the situation and highlight one solution.

1:58 CPAN Envy
by Casey West - pair Networks
I hate using other programming languages. They all have CPAN Envy. This talk will be in two (very) small parts. First I get to rant a little about how our repository is bigger than their repository. Second I'm going to release a project for saving one of those less fortunate programming languages from CPAN Envy.

by Ivan Tubert-Brohman
AnnoCPAN is a web interface for the documentation of all the modules on CPAN, where users can add annotations on the margin of specific paragraphs throughout the POD. In this talk I will discuss very briefly how it all started, how it works, and extend an invitation for everyone to participate by adding their own notes and "annotating CPAN".
