It’s a new year, so it’s probably a good time to remind you about some training sessions that I have coming up.
- Perl School 4 is on 9th February. The subject this time is Database Programming with Perl and DBIx::Class. As always, a full day of training costs just £30 and the class will be held at Google Campus in London.
- For the last few years I’ve always run a series of public training courses in conjunction with flossUK (formerly UKUUG) and O’Reilly. This year we’re running two two-courses at the Ambassadors Hotel in Central London. There’s a two-day Intermediate Perl course on 12/13 February and an Advanced Perl course on 14/15 February. You can book for these courses on the flossUK web site.
- The London courses have been going so well that flossUK and O’Reilly have asked me to try running some courses elsewhere in the country. The first location is Manchester where I’ll be running a two-day Advanced Perl course on 17/18 April. Once again, you can book for the course on the flossUK web site.
I hope to see some of you at one or more of these courses.
I’ve mentioned before that I’m running some public training courses in London next month. But how do you fancy coming along to those courses for free?
Those lovely people at O’Reilly have put an advert for the courses in the new issue of Linux Format which hits the shops about now. That’s issue 154 and the advert is on page 54. The advert contains details of a competition where two people can win free places on the two courses – one person on each course.
There are also four runner-up prizes which are copies of the new edition of the Camel book.
All you need to do is… well to find that out you’ll need to buy the magazine. Ok, so entry isn’t 100% free – you’ll need to pay £6.49 for the magazine.
Earlier this year I met Josette Garcia at OpenTech and she told me about her new blog Josetteorama. She asked me if I’d like to contribute a few articles about Perl to the site. I agreed and then promptly forgot about it for a couple of months.
But I remembered my promise a week or so ago and realised that this would be a great opportunity to promote YAPC::Europe outside of the Perl community.
So I wrote an article called YAPC::Europe Preview. And she published it today. Hope you find it interesting.
