Show them Perl's greatest asset -- concise solutions to everyday problems.

If you have time, pick some task that will resonate with as many of them as possible and get one or more of them to solve the chosen task in their favoured langugages before the day.

By way of example (because the examples already exist): frequency count the words in a text file.

And then write & run your perl solution in real time:

perl -nle"y/a-zA-Z/ /cs; ++$h{$_} for split }{ print qq[$_:$h{$_}] for + sort keys %h" theFile break:1 brief:1 bring:3 brought:2 buffalo:16 burden:1 but:20 by:16 call:2 called:6 came:2 campaign:1 can:36 cannot:2 capable:1 capitals:1 career:2 cart:1 case:2 ...

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

RIP Neil Armstrong
