Basic knowledge of computer programming in any language.
Discover some of the amazing things you can do with Perl 5, including downloading text and images from the Internet (just like Zuckerberg in The Social Network), reformatting data, importing and exporting data to and from databases, sysadmin-type tasks like renaming or moving files, fixing even huge amounts of data quickly and even creating web CGI scripts. In this course you’ll also learn how to use regular expressions, those unbelievably useful little things that have now made their way into almost every serious programming language, yet remain the bête noire of many a developer.

“Really liked the course. If you’re looking to learn the basics of perl and its most common applications, you’ve got to follow this course. It will ramp up your knowledge faster than going through books and crash courses on the web.
I’d really recommend people following the course, to try to redo the lessons’ goals own their own and if possible, to try to find a real application in their daily work that could make use of this info. I did and it helped me a lot.
To conclude, thanks John for the effort you put in developing this course. Great material.” (Mauricio De Maria)

“This course is awesome! I wish I would have had it when I was first starting to code with Perl. The instructor has a knack for clearly explaining the concepts and making you understand how it all works. A definite must for anyone interested in the subject matter.” (Martin Uribe)
After working as a software developer and contractor for over 14 years for a whole bunch of companies including CSC, Proquest, SPSS and AT&T in the UK and Netherlands, I decided to work full-time as a private software trainer. I now live in the beautiful city of Budapest, Hungary, from where I run the website Cave of Programming.
