Perl and System Administrators: Where Do We Go From Here? Wednesday, December @ 8:00pm - 9:00pm New Orleans Mariott - Balcony N Gurusamy Sarathy, Senior Developer, ActiveState Perl and System Administrators: Where do we go from here? This session will be of interest to all sysadmins who either use Perl to get their jobs done or have users in the same position. The major focus for the BoF will be how Perl can better support the ever-changing daily needs of sysadmins and their users, on a variety of platforms. Some potential topics include: blind-spots in Perl's support for common system administration tasks; headaches in installing Perl modules; do's and don'ts when upgrading to a new version of Perl; managing installations for large numbers of Perl users; and platform-specific Perl issues. Be sure to bring your worthy ideas, and don't be surprised if they actually find their way into the next version of Perl! Getting Plugged Into Sendmail Wednesday, December 6 @ 9:00pm - 10:00pm New Orleans Mariott - Balcony L Mike Smith, Developer, ActiveState If you are interested in getting plugged into sendmail at the SMTP transaction level then this BoF is for you. We'll talk about how the Milter API lets you hook into sendmail at each stage of the transaction. Then we'll look at some simple filter examples written in C and Perl and discuss how these can be extended to provide powerful mail filtering solutions.
