Randal L. Schwartz, Stonehenge Consulting

Track: Perl Conference 5
Date: Monday, July 23
Time: 8:45am - 5:15pm
Location: Harbor Island II

Target Audience:

What attendees will learn:
The knowledge or skill take-away attendees will have at the completion of the tutorial:

  • The essential parts of Perl, to get you started right away
  • And some bad puns
  • And certainly a smile or two.
Tutorial outline
This course is a major structural update to the wildly popular "Learning Perl" course developed by Randal Schwartz and Stonehenge and delivered hundreds of times to worldwide customers, corresponding to the new "third edition" Llama book being released at the conference. New means of learning regular expressions, array syntax, subroutine invocation, along with the best things that worked from the classic course.
