You can find more information on the speaker's site:

Join me in exploring the deep, dark caverns of the perl-5.12 keyword API as we implement qw(): The Next Generation.

We'll implement and test qqw(), a version of the qw() we all know and love, but with the ability to interpolate variables, just like qq(). Make a torch out of the perl optree and follow me (recursively, depth first) into the dark world of XS macros as you learn how to implement your own Perl syntax.
