Here are the slides from the Modern Core Perl talk that I gave at the LPW yesterday.
A great day at the workshop as always. And what a lot of people there were! Thanks to everyone who organised, spoke or attended.
This year’s London Perl Workshop will be on November 12th. We’ve just tied down the details of the free training course that I’ll be running on the day.
It will be called “Modern Core Perl” and will be a two-hour discussion of how the Perl core has changed since Perl 5.10.
More details nearer the date.
I’ve got another set of public training courses coming up next month. They will be held at the Imperial Hotel in Russell Square, London.
There are three one-day courses – Introduction to Perl, Intermediate Perl and Advance Perl. They’re running on the 13th, 14th and 15th of April.
More details on my training web site. Hope to see some of you there.
p.s. Gabor has been kind enough to advertise the courses on his newly revamped CPAN Forum site – so the least I can do is to repay the favour and recommend that you have a look at the site.
Yesterday was the London Perl Workshop. As always it was a fabulous day packed full of great talks about Perl. Thanks to the organisers for all the work they put in.
I gave the keynote speech first thing in the morning. The talk was called The “M” Word and it was an overview of how the Perl community has started to get to grips with the problem of marketing over the last year.
Here are the slides:
The London Perl Workshop is getting closer. It’s on Saturday 5th December at the University of Westminster’s Cavendish Street Campus (the same place it’s been for the last few years).
The schedule was announced a couple of days ago and, at always, it looks like a great line-up. I’m particularly pleased to see that Tatsuhiko Miyagawa will be there talking about Plack and PSGI (although, slightly less pleased to see that it clashes with a presentation that I’m involved with).
I’m going to be involved in a few things at the workshop. They’ve invited me to give the keynote again, so I’m giving a talk called The “M” Word. Later in the day I’m giving a two hour tutorial called The Professional Programmer which will discuss some of the practicalities of working in the IT industry (this is largely aimed at the university’s students but others will also be welcome). Finally, towards the end of the day, I’ll be speaking alongside Matt Trout, Curtis Poe and Ed Freyfogle on a panel called Skills in the Workplace.
The LPW is always a great day. I hope you’ll come along and join in. Oh, and even if you can’t make it you can pretend you were there by buying one of the workshop t-shirts.
I’m astonished to realise that I hadn’t already mentioned the three days of Perl training that I’m going to be running in central London next month. So please excuse a quick plug.
The training is running from 24th – 26th November and there are three separate one-day courses covering beginner, intermediate and advanced topics. If you’re wondering what subjects will be covered on each of the days then there’s a handy list on the web site. The courses are designed to be standalone, but they also work well together if you wanted to do two (or even all three) of them together.
The courses will be held at the Imperial Hotel in Russell Square. Each day’s course costs £339.25 (inc VAT). That includes lunch.
The classes will be run lecture style, but there will be plenty of time in the breaks for you to try stuff out if you want to bring a laptop with you.
If you want to improve your Perl (or you want your colleagues to improve their Perl) then please think about signing up.
Update: It appears that there are only a tiny number of places left on the Intermediate course and not many more on the other two days – so I strongly recommend booking soon.
