  • Good luck with the teaching process. I've tried to do a little one-on-one teaching with a friend who had dire need of immediate Perl literacy, and I think they understood, but I'm also not very comfortable in one-on-one situations like that.

    Please, recount the experience once it gets underway (assuming there's no job-related reason not to)...

    • Well, we have had a couple of classes so far. We have taught Unix and vi familiarization classes(these programmers have used Windows forever). It helps, for me, that everyone in the class is someone familiar to me. I am comfortable with that.

      Also, my co-teacher is very sharp. We write the lessons in PowerPoint and he converts them to slides for use in the classroom. It helps that the classroom has modern teaching aids.

      These lesson plans are taking a lot of work. We usually split the lesson and each of us writes up his part. Then we get together to discuss and edit each part and put them together.

      Monday I am flying solo. My co-teacher will be out of town so I will be doing the whole class alone. This class will be my first in Perl. Wish me luck.
