About the Course
At Frozen Perl, brian is teaching a new master class based on his latest book, Effective Perl Programming, 2nd Edition. Perl has changed quite a bit since Joseph Hall wrote the first edition over 10 years ago. Josh McAdams and brian have added a lot of new information as well as updating the existing material.
In the one-day class for intermediate Perl programmers, He'll cover selected topics from the book, including:
- Working with Unicode in Perl
- Tricks with filehandles
- New regex features in Perl 5.10 and later
- Playing with pack()
- Using closures to make things simpler
- and other topics as time allows
Although the book hasn't been published yet, it is available for pre-order, and attendees to the class can get a sneak peek at the working manuscript as well as a soft copy of the course slides.
