recent ThinkPad models have hardware Accelerator monitoring for HDD shock protection. In this talk I'll present you how to hack this Accelerator from Perl, or intergrate with other progamming languages API like Google Maps API to enable the coolest user interface.

7 Writing XML files from Perl
by Alberto Sim�es
How do you write XML files from Perl? And HTML? Do you use the same kind of approach? No? Why not? There isn't a CGI module for XML? Are you sure?

8 Why Perl is not accessible for non US keyboard users
by Alberto Sim�es
This is a programming but also funny presentation about how keyboard layouts can make Perl programming not accessible.

11 HTTP::Async - process several HTTP requests at once.
by Edmund von der Burg
This module (on CPAN in next couple of days) was created to allow several HTTP requests to be in action at once without blocking the execution of the code. The content can be processed as it is returned. If you are creating a crawler this is vital as it allows you to use one process for several sites without blocking on the reading from the network.

12 All your Database Drivers Are Belong To Us
by Tim Bunce - Data Plan Services
Perl has its own database drivers. Python has its own database drivers. Ruby has its own database drivers. Tcl has its own database drivers. Just about every language has its own database drivers. ALL DIFFERENT - ALL DUPLICATING EFFORT - NONE PERFECT. All these languages have versions targeting Parrot. Parrot is meant to enable these languages to interoperate. Let's not duplicate database driver development again! I'm working on defining a database driver API for Parrot. I need help. Come join me.

13 Success Story: XML with Templates
by Tina M�ller
For two programs that generate XML I switched from XML::LibXML to a template system - and it's faster. Which cool template system could that be? =)

14 Perl Hotel Service
by Thomas Klausner
Perl people are living nearly everywhere on the world. Perl people also travel nearly everywhere on the world. Why not start an informal system to match people wanting to provide a guest bed/room with people looking for a guest bed/room.

17 Sock! Kayo!! Vronk!!!
by Philippe "BooK" Bruhat
After last year's talk at Braga, I received enough help to bring Acme::MetaSyntactic up to version 1.00. This is going to be the "thank you" talk! As the module approaches version 1.00, I'll explain the plans for the future, and how I expect to waste other people's tuits in maintaining the weekly flow of new themes. And there will be a surprise, too.
