Learning Perl

4-day class with exercises
Learning Perl is the introduction to Perl suited to both beginners and experienced programmers starting in Perl. Based on the best-selling book from O’Reilly Media, Learning Perl covers the parts of the language that a programmer working alone needs to create standalone programs.

This course is four days of lecture mixed with practical exercises. Students practice new skills that build up to a beginner’s level knowledge of the most common parts of the language they need for most tasks.

This course includes the Learning Perl book and a hard copy of the course slides.

The next course in this series is Intermediate Perl, which we recommend students take after six months of experience with the concepts they learn in this course.
