It’s been a while since I’ve run a training course alongside a YAPC. By my calculations, the last time was Riga in 2011. But I’ve been talking to the organisers of this year’s conference and we have plan.
I’m going to be running a one-day introductory course on DBIx::Class before the conference (I think it’ll be on 1st September, but that’s not 100% certain yet). Full details are on the conference web site. There’s an early-bird price of 150 Euro and the full price is 200 Euro. The web site says that the early-bird price finishes today, but I wouldn’t be at all surprised if that gets extended for a few days at least.
Of course, readers of this blog will all already be experts in DBIC and won’t need this course. But I’m sure that most of you will have a colleague who would benefit from… well… a refresher on who DBIC works. Why not see if your company will pay for them to attend the course 🙂
The course size is limited. So you might want to think about booking soon.
Hope to see some of you in Granada.
- The date has now been confirmed as 1st September.
- The early-bird pricing has been extended until 1st June.
For many years (since the end of 2007, apparently) I’ve been uploading the slides from my talks and training courses to Slideshare.
This morning I got an email from them, telling me that they had made their analytics pages freely available. I don’t know if this is a permanent change or a special offer, but the link (which will only work for logged in users) is http://www.slideshare.net/insight.
There’s a lot of information there and I look forward into digging into it in a lot more detail. But I thought it would be interesting to share the list of my top ten most popular slide decks.
A lot of those course are aimed at people who are starting Perl from scratch. I guess it’s true that there are plenty of people out there who still want to learn Perl.
I have a few training courses coming up in the next few weeks which I thought you might be interested in.
Firstly, the London Perl Workshop is on 8th November. I’ll be giving a two hour talk on “Perl in the Internet of Things“. As always, the workshop is free, but please register on the site and star my talk if you’re planning on attending.
Then the week after I’m running two two-day courses in conjunction with FLOSS UK. On Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th it’s “Intermediate Perl” and on Thursday 13th and Friday 14th it’s “Advanced Perl Techniques”. Full details and a booking for are on the FLOSS UK web site.
Note: If you’re interested in the FLOSS UK courses, then please don’t pay the eye-watering non-member price (£720!) Simply join FLOSS UK (which costs £42) and then pay the member price of £399.
Hope to see you at one of this courses.
For many years now a regular feature of my training calendar has been the annual public courses that I have run in London in conjunction with FlossUK. Normally these happen in February, but this year I had to postpone them as I was in the USA for a lot of February.
But FlossUK still wanted to do them, so we’ve arranged to run the courses in November instead. There will be two two-day courses which will be held at the Ambassadors Hotel in central London.
For full details (and soon, I hope, a booking form) see the FlossUK web site.
Update: I’m sorry to have to announce that this course has been cancelled. I hope to reschedule for later in the year.
Tempus fugit and another Perl School rolls around.
Next Saturday (June 8th) I’ll be running my one-day course on Database Programming with Perl and DBIx::Class. As always the course will take place at Google Campus in London and tickets for the course cost £30.
The course is aimed at people who know Perl but would like an introduction to modern database programming using DBIx::Class. Full details of the topics covered are on the Perl School web site, where you’ll also find a booking form.
