The Perl motto is "There's More Than One Way to Do It." Unfortunately, some of those ways can be ugly. What should you do?

Tune in on Friday, February 25th as Peter Scott, author of the O'Reilly School of Technology's Perl Programming Certificate series, talks about how to deal with "legacy" Perl code - written by someone else, or maybe even yourself when you were younger and less wise. And if you'd like to ask a Perl question, share your own tips, or make a general comment leading up to this event, be sure to tweet OST at
