in thread What are the most basic, generic aspects of programming?
None of them have ever done programming of any sort...They want to be able to do minor mods in house or change things without having to go to me.
I hope you're sure you were really asked to teach them Perl, and I hope whoever's hiring you for this knows what he's doing, and that after a week's worth of lessons, the boss doesn't come to you and say something like "Did you teach them how to change the font color yet? That's mainly what I wanted."
