Training Perl Beginners

[ #8150 ]

I noticed a nice new Perl 5.8.0 perlintro. I am trying to train and inspire some absolute Perl beginners and started by pointing them at the URL above (while warning them *not* to visit the intro author's Kink album at infotrope.net ;)

Oh, and I just subscribed to perl-trainers@perl.org. Any advice on how to train Perl beginners welcome.

    Well, I can recommend a good book to start with, perhaps.

    • I told them the best first book on Perl is "Learning Perl", but I couldn't remember the author's name. ;) I might add that one of them piped up (without any provocation) and said: "Learning Perl is a great book". As for best second books on Perl, I recommended the shiny ball book and the camel. And TheDamian's OO Perl as the best third book. Actually, davorg's "Data Munging with Perl" looks like a nice second book too, but I haven't read it. Being new to Perl training, I will also poke around the Stonehenge
