For several years I’ve been running an annual set of public training courses in London in conjunction with FLOSS UK (formerly known as UKUUG). For various scheduling reasons, we didn’t get round to running any this year, but we have already made plans for next year.
I’ll be running five days of training in central London from 8th – 12th February. The courses will take place at the Ambassador’s Hotel on Upper Woburn Place. Full details are in the process of appearing on the FLOSS UK web site, but the booking page doesn’t seem to be live yet, so I can’t tell you how much it will cost.
We’re doing something a little different this year. In previous years, I’ve been running two generic two-day courses – one on intermediate Perl and one on advanced Perl. This year we’re running a number of shorter but more focussed courses. The complete list is:
- Object Oriented Programming with Perl and Moose (Mon 8th Feb)
- Database Programming with Perl and DBIx::Class (Tue 9th Feb)
- An Introduction to Testing Perl Programs (Wed 10th Feb)
- Modern Web Programming with Perl (two day course – Thu/Fri 11th/12th Feb)
This new approach came out of some feedback we’ve received from attendees over the last couple of years. I’m hoping that by offering this shorter courses, people will be able to take more of a “mix and match” approach and will select courses that better fit their requirements. Of course, if you’re interested, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t come to all five days.
I’ll update this page when I know how much the courses will cost and how you can book. But please put these dates in your calendar.
Update: And less than 24 hours after publishing this blog post, the booking page has gone live.
Places are £300 a day (so £600 for the two-day course on web programming) and there’s a special offer of £1,320 for the full week.
Prices are cheaper (by £90 a day) for members. And given that an annual individual membership costs £35, that all sounds like a bit of a no-brainer to me.
