The long version

"Canonical perl web development"
by Jeremiah Foster
Of course there is no "canonical" way to develop web pages with perl, but there a very good way that seems to be connected to every other way, namely the combination of CGI.pm, DBI and Templating Toolkit. We'll demonstrate a simple web app with these three tools in five minutes!

OCR by regexp

The powers of regexps were put to test on almost everything, except on OCR ... until now. Demo of OCR::Naive.

The French Perl Workshop 2007 will take place on Friday November 16 and Saturday November 17, 2007, at CPE Lyon (�cole Sup�rieure Chimie, Physique et Electronique). This year, we have a professional focus: large projects, Perl in corporations, job fair... It is time to make our language of choice better known!

Trivial utilities

Some of the most useful code I've written in the last year has been utterly trivial. I'll show it to you.

This needs work.

Working around *the* Perl 5 unicode bug
by Juerd Waalboer
lc, uc, lcfirst, ucfirst, regex classes \w, \d, \s, regex operations involving case insensitivity, they're all broken in Perl 5. There's a very simple workaround to make Perl predictable again.

In this talk, I rant about the great lack of Perl in the K Desktop Environment (KDE).

Reinventing the wheel?
by Jean Forget
This talk presents several kinds of wheels, with very different technologies and very different uses.

Zlopp! Biff!! Plop!!! or how NOT to use Acme::MetaSyntactic
by Philippe Bruhat
For the third YAPC in a row, I'll do an Acme::MetaSyntactic presentation. This time I won't list all themes while dancing on the beat of the Batman serial theme music, but instead I'll show examples of the many ways to misuse Acme::MetaSyntactic.

GUI testing with Win32::GUITest
by Ren�e B�cker
I won't talk much - I want to demonstrate what you can do with Win32::GUITest. I will show two or three small programs that use the Perl module to automate some tasks. I think this a good and funny talk.

(Funny)
Perl event addiction!
by Jonathan Worthington
Conferences! Workshops! Hackathons! .pm groups! A look at the events I went to over the last year, and a lesson on what happens when you can't say no.
