On Friday, February 4, 2011 at Frozen Perl, I’m teaching a master class based on Effective Perl Programming, 2nd Edition. The master class is a low-cost, condensed class format given at a public Perl event. The cost of this one-day class is $100, and there are a limited number of $25 seats for full-time students.
In the one-day class for intermediate Perl programmers, I’ll cover selected topics from the book and possibly from this website.
During OSCON, Joshua and I are taking part in the Perl Authors Night at Powell’s Technical Books on Tuesday, July 20 at 7 pm. Bring your copy of Effective Perl Programming for us to sign.
Other authors confirmed so far include:
chromatic (Modern Perl, Perl Testing: A Developer’s Notebook, Perl Hacks, Extreme Programming Pocket Guide)
brian d foy (Effective Perl Programming, Learning Perl, Intermediate Perl, Mastering Perl)
Joshua McAdams (Effective Perl Programming)
Curtis “Ovid” Poe (Perl Hacks)
Randal Schwartz (Programming perl (1st edition), Learning Perl, Intermediate Perl, Perls of Wisdom)
Peter Scott (Perl Medic, Perl Debugged, Perl Fundamentals (DVD))
Make sure that you’re going to Powell’s Technical Books is at 33 Northwest Park Avenue in Portland, and not one of their other Portland stores. You can take the MAX Green line (for free) from the Convention Center to NW 5th St and NW Couch St, then walk 4 blocks west to the store.
I’ve now given the second Effective Perl Programming class, this time a two-day master class at YAPC::NA 2010 in Columbus. The common comment during the class seemed to be “You just blew my mind again”. I’m also giving this talk in a one day format at YAPC::EU in Pisa on Aug 7 Continue reading “The handful of basic Perl concepts”
I’ll be teaching an Effective Perl Programming course at YAPC::NA in Columbus, OH on June 24 and 25 at the conference venue. The cost of the two day master class is just $240, and this year that includes your snacks and lunches each day.
Josh and I will also have a box of signed copies of the book, although those might go fast during the conference (and aren’t part of the course fee). Of course, you can also buy your book in advance and have us sign it during the conference. :)
On Friday, February 5, 2010 at Frozen Perl, I’m teaching a new master class based on our book, Effective Perl Programming, 2nd Edition. The master class is a low-cost, condensed class format given at a public Perl event. The cost of this one-day class is $100, and there are a limited number of $25 seats for full-time students.
In the one-day class for intermediate Perl programmers, I’ll cover selected topics from the book, including:
- Working with Unicode in Perl
- Tricks with filehandles
- New regex features in Perl 5.10 and later
- Playing with
- Using closures to make things simpler
- and other topics as time allows
Although the book hasn’t been published yet, it is available for pre-order on Amazon, and attendees to the class can get a sneak peek at the working manuscript as well as a soft copy of the course slides.
