For 2023 (and 2024 ...) - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.

Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!

I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))

This advanced course takes the Perl programmer through the facilities provided in the language which make it particularly suitable for larger projects.

We start off with a quick review of Perl programming fundamentals so that you can ask any nagging questions you have about the core elements of Perl. We then move on to look at documentation standards, tools such as editors, debuggers, and modules such as the data dumper.

Perl can handle much more than just simple lists and hashes. You'll learn how, and you'll learn about both structured coding and objects. By keeping your code in manageable chunks, Perl can be scaled up to meet larger requirements. "Perl makes the difficult things easy, and the impossible is made possible" -- Larry Wall, "Father" of Perl, June 2001.

Perl provides a "glue" to let you interface to many different technologies. You'll learn about standard modules supplied with Perl, and those freely available on the CPAN. Some of these modules, such as the SQL database interface that you can use to connect to Oracle ... or Access ... or MySQL ... merit their own chapter, and their own practicals.

Some users have really big and complex data sets to handle, and the course moves on to cover regular expressions and efficiency issues, before concluding with discussions on Perl programming standards, such as how you should write your code to be effective, easy-to-maintain, and easy-to-modify in the future as your requirements change.

This course covers version 5 of Perl (the current version), with footnotes where appropriate to tell you about Perl 6. Our plans for Perl 6 training are described on a separate page.
