2 day Advanced Perl (including practical sessions)

NOTE: All delegates will need to bring a laptop with a recent version of Perl
installed.

Description: This course is aimed at people who have a lot of experience of
Perl but who might not have had the time to keep up to date with the latest
Perl techniques. This course teaches the latest techniques being used by the
world’s best Perl programmers. This is the knowledge that will enable you to
describe yourself as a “Perl expert”.

Course Outline:
* The latest versions of Perl * Advanced testing * DBIx::Class
* Handling exceptions * Profiling & benchmarking * Dancer and Catalyst
* Object Oriented programming with Moose * Web development with Plack

Tutor: Dave Cross is the owner of Magnum Solutions Ltd, an Open Source
consultancy company based in London. In 1998 he started london.pm which has
grown to be one of the largest Perl Mongers groups in the world. He nominally
led the group until September 2001. Between August 2002 and June 2006 he was
the Perl Mongers User Groups Co-ordinator for the Perl Foundation. Dave is a
regular speaker at Perl and Open Source conferences and is often invited to
present tutorials alongside the main conference. He is the author of “Data
Munging with Perl” (Manning, 2001) and a co-author of “Perl Template Toolkit”
(O’Reilly, 2003). Dave lives in SW London. The rumours about gold-plated cats
were never true.
