Modern Perl in Linux Format

A couple of times, I’ve complained here about the standard of Perl articles in the British magazine Linux Format.

Following the second of those articles I got into a discussion with Graham Morrison, the editor of the magazine and he offered me the opportunity to improve matters by writing my own short series of tutorials for them.

The first of those tutorials appears in issue 151 of the magazine which will be appearing in UK newsagents about now.

The series is called “Modern Perl” (in an attempt to distance it from their earlier tutorials) and the first article is about how easy it is to write a database application using DBIx::Class. The second article will take the same database and build it into a simple web application using Dancer. That will hopefully be in issue 153 (skipping an issue). There will probably be a third article in the series which will add features to the web application.

I’ll find out what my rights are to the articles and hopefully I’ll be able to put them on the web at some point in the future.

If you see a copy in your newsagents then please consider picking it up. And if you enjoy the article, then please let the magazine know.
