No good intro to perl books in spanish?
I'm giving the closing keynote speech at CONSOL 2005
in Mexico City this week. While I'm here, I'm attending whatever classes have some Perl content, so I can at least read the slides to pass the time. I'm also regretting not being better at spanish than just "Si", "No", "Cervesa" and "Banos", because there appears to be a lot of good content at this Mexico equivalent of OSCON.
One thing that's been made clear to me is that the lack of my "Learning Perl" translated to Spanish is really noticed here. Apparently, only randomly bad intro-to-Perl books have been translated. This is sad. I may have to talk with O'Reilly when I get back to see what we can do about that for our friends to the south.
