Training Update

The training courses for this summer’s YAPC in Pisa have been announced. And my course on Modern Perl has been chosen. It’s a one-day course on August 2th (just before the conference). It costs € 180. You’ll be able to book once the payments system on the conference web site goes live.

Here’s the description of the course from the YAPC site:

This course introduces the major building blocks of modern Perl. We’ll be looking at a number of CPAN modules that can make your Perl programming life far more productive.

The major tools that we will cover will be:

  • Template Toolkit
  • DBIx::Class
  • Moose
  • Catalyst
  • Plack

We’ll also look at some other modules including autodie, DateTime and TryCatch.

There are several other good courses running both before and after the conference. I’m sure there’ll be something that you’ll find interesting.

N.B: This is not an April Fool’s joke!

Training in Pisa

The YAPC::Europe organisers have put out a call for training courses. They want a number of courses to offer to attendees in the couple of days before the conference. The call closed yesterday and I expect they’ll be announcing the courses in a couple of weeks.

I’ve given training courses at the last couple of YAPC::Europes so I’ve sent in a proposal for a course. I’m hoping to run a new course called “An Introduction to Modern Perl”. In this course we’ll be looking at some of the tools that form the basis of all modern Perl programming. This will include Template Toolkit, Moose, DBIx::Class, Catalyst and Plack.

I hope that this sounds interesting to some of you and that you’ll consider attending the course (if it gets accepted). Please keep an eye on the conference web site to see when the courses are announced.

And please consider holding off booking your travel and hotel until you’ve seen the selection of courses that will be offered before the conference.

I suppose now I should start thinking about some talks to give at the conference.
