Perl Hacker's Bootcamp @ WIMS'11

Perl is a mature programming language with a strong history as a hacker's "swiss army chainsaw", a favorite system administrator's tool, but also suitable for creating highly scalable web applications, for data analysis and for computational linguistics. Importantly, CPAN is arguably the software world's best established repository for free software, and has a strong social QA process.

A small community of Semantic Web practioneers have created a number of good Perl tools, and we have invited some of the leaders of this community to host a "hacker's bootcamp" to help you get going writing practical applications.

Amongst these tools are parsers, serializers, storage layer and a low-level API for working with RDF. We also have a SPARQL 1.1 implementation that will be one of the first conformant implementations. We can further bind to the Redland C library to take advantage of the speed it offers. We have a simple test framework, and web server frameworks for serving Linked Data and for setting up SPARQL endpoints. There is a cutting-edge RDFa parser, along with modules to lift data using GRDDL, microformats, microdata. We can also export RDF to many other formats. Finally, we have a very interesting stack for using WebID to limit access to parts of a graph. In the works, there are reasoners, RDFa-based templating and high-level APIs.
