II Does Training

Infinity Interactive is pleased to once again offer Perl training at this year's YAPC::NA! We will have three sessions, both before and after the conference itself. The pre-conference training is aimed at people new to Perl, while the post-conference training is aimed at people who already know Perl and are interested in more advanced topics.

These all-day sessions are taught by Infinity's eminent Perl experts and are offered at our special community rates.

Sessions Available

Zero to Perl: Saturday, June 21

Ticket price: Donations gladly accepted

The "Zero To Perl" course is designed to introduce programmers and novices of any experience level to Perl 5 programming. This one day course will show you the basic skills you'll need to write Perl for a variety of tasks, including the building blocks of text processing, web development, database manipulation, and systems administration.

The course will cover basic Perl syntax, including variables and data structures, flow control, functions, reading and writing files, and basic regular expressions. More advanced topics like object-oriented programming will be explored in the companion class "Perl for Programmers," also available at this conference.

Instruction will be interspersed with hands-on sessions where you'll put into practice the concepts that you have just learned. Instructors will be available to give each student direct assistance as needed.

After completing this course, you'll be ready to start writing your own basic Perl programs, and you'll be perfectly positioned to enjoy the rest of YAPC::NA, even if this is your first exposure to Perl.

As of this writing, there are still seats available for all three sessions. We do, however, like to keep our class sizes relatively intimate, so be sure to sign up quickly via the Crowdtilt pages linked above.
