WorkshopsIn Depth Lectures

The Reflections | Projections conference will again be hosting workshop events along with scheduled talks. The workshop events are a smaller, and more interactive environment between the presenters and the audience. Imagine talking to the lecturers for an extra hour in private. The workshops provide you with this opportunity.

This year, the following workshops will be presented :

Rules that are Meant to be Broken

This workshop will cover how Perl 6 defines a completely extensible parser and uses its own extension mechanisms to parse the various domain-specific sublanguage that are part of standard Perl 6, such as quotes, macros, regular expressions, and even its own grammar.

ZFS: The Last Word in File Systems

ZFS is an open-source file system that brings all the cool features of high-end storage to your laptop. Snapshots, clones, compression, encryption, RAID, remote replication, and end-to-end data integrity are all integrated and trivial to use. This workshop is a continuation of Jeff's earlier talk.
