Narrated by Randal Schwartz
Randal L. Schwartz is best well known for his seminal books on the Perl
programming language that helped make the world wide web possible and
popular. He produced a weekly audio and video podcast on open source
software, but has given that up after 13 years to get those five hours
per week back again. Between the podcast, and bouncing all over the
world teaching programming and speaking at conferences, he’s no stranger
to the limelight. He enjoys pulling out his gear to record yet another
narration, and likens it to “getting to read bedtime stories to the kids
I never had”, and looks forward to future assignments.
