  1. Yati Sagade :: Writing (parts of) Android apps in Perl using Perlito

    A demo of using the Perl -> Java compiler from the Perlito project to "run" Perl on the Android Java runtime.

  1. Flávio :: Perl to Java compiler

    Compile Perl to Java source code, run your Perl in smaller and bigger places like Android, Hadoop. Learn more about how Perl works in a different memory system, with access to a different set of libraries.

  1. Bosko Devetak :: Perl as a first class citizen in Hadoop land

    In Hadoop land (MapReduce, Hive, HBase) all non-jvm languages are second class citizens that mostly depend on the REST or thrift servers in order to get access to different functionality. But not all is available so it can be limiting at times.

    Luckily, Perlito Java Backend opens up the possibility of accessing native hadoop/hive/hbase java APIs from Perl.

    This talk will give some examples of that, like writing Hive UDF’s in Perl using Perlito Java Backend.
