Ok, so, as a favour to the UKUUG and to Dave Cross, founder of the illustrious
london.pm and person mad enough to let me split the tutorial time at the
London Perl Workshop 2008 with him, I hereby re-appear on the lists to
point out that there are tutorials going on, and those of you attempting to
get people up to speed or rescue PHP developers or whatever might be
interested in it.

So, if you are interested, here's the details -

UKUUG (in conjunction with O'Reilly) presents:

Introduction to Perl - 25th February 2009

Day 1: Introduction to Perl - 25th February:

This one-day course is an introduction to Perl for complete beginners. No 
knowledge of Perl is assumed, although attendees will have a slight advantage 
if they have some knowledge of at least one other programming language. At 
the end of the course, attendees will have enough knowledge to write a number 
of useful Perl programs, together with details of where to go for more

Day 2: Advanced Perl Techniques - 26th February:

Perl has come a long way since the "scripting language" which powered most of 
the world wide web in the 1990s. There are many ways to build applications in 
Perl. In this course we will look at some powerful techniques which are used 
by the best Perl programmers in the world. This one-day course is aimed at 
programmers who have been using Perl for some time but who may not be 
completely up to date with the latest Perl techniques. At the end of the 
course attendees will have a number of modern Perl programming techniques to 
their programming toolkit. 

What's new in Perl 5.10 
Dates and times

Database access with DBIx::Class
