Hi All,

For those who might not have seen this on the UKUUG list, an
opportunity for novice and experienced mongers alike to learn
something new:

UKUUG (in conjunction with O'Reilly) presents:

Introduction to Perl - 25th February 2009

Advanced Perl Techniques - 26th February 2009

Tutor: Dave Cross

see:  http://www.ukuug.org/events/perl09/

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 information.

What is Perl
Input and output
Creating and running a Perl program
Regular expressions
Perl variables
Operators and functions
Finding and using modules
Conditional constructs
Smart matching

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.
