Modern Perl for Non-Perl Programmers

An introduction to Perl for programmers who don’t use Perl (or don’t use much Perl).

Perl has come a long way in the last ten years. It has web frameworks, a powerful ORM, a huge number of add-on libraries and one of the most flexible object systems you’ll find in any language. And there are plenty of companies in London who use Perl and who are looking for Perl programmers.

Perl author and trainer Dave Cross introduces Perl in a low cost training course that is tailored for people who have used other programming languages.
