Websites With PERL
PERL has been the key tool in
the growth of our company. The simple fact that programs can be
modified realtime and used on websites with hundreds of thousands
of users without compiling and installing. That makes the
development of applications move at lightspeed.
Anyone that writes programs
knows that the process of integrating ideas into code is time
consuming and difficult. The flexibility of perl and the speed at
which new ideas can be tried makes perl the ideal language for
developing web based applications.
We would like to share some of
the concepts we have learned and developed in building thousands
of websites, giving young programers some insight into what perl
We have used perl to develop
banking and e-commerce, processed millions of credit card
transactions, run databases with millions of records, managed
websites with 20,000 concurrent users and hundreds of thousands
of registered users.
We have not found the limits
of perl, only the limits of imagination to make programs work
using perl. Listed below are some of our ideas, concepts and
encounters as we created some large scale projects in perl.
