This section is an ever-growing online textbook, from which you can learn the basics of Perl, or some nifty stuff you haven't seen before.

Should I post here?

While you can post directly to the Tutorials section, this has certain drawbacks. A generally better approach is to follow this procedure:

  1. Write up your draft tutorial and put it in your scratchpad; broadcast requests for comments in the chatterbox and elsewhere.
    After revising,
  2. Post it as a new Meditation, with "RFC" in the title.
    Later, if it is generally acclaimed to be worthy of Tutorials, but needs more work first, then make the necessary revisions and
  3. Post the final version as a Tutorials node.
Since ideally the Tutorials section has a high value-to-noise ratio, tutorial documents should be in as finished a state as possible before being posted to that section. (Not that it's the end of the world if they aren't.)

If you would be interested in writing a Tutorial but aren't sure what to write about, or if you have an idea for a Tutorial but can't commit to writing it — check out the Tutorials Quest!

Also of interest: How does editing work in the Tutorials section?

If you have Tutorials-related questions or requests, you may /msg them to Pedagogues.

Chatterbox?
[1nickt]: Corion HPs? ugh. I was impressed with Lenovo's gaming laptops; if it weren't for the red backlighting and general flashiness of the aesthetic, I might have gone with that. But all that was until I discovered that the Dell Precision line is still around.
[1nickt]: stevieb I don;t doubt that there's a difference. BestBuy has "consumer" models only on display.
[ambrus]: 1nickt: for some reason, these days they call every computer "gaming", even ones that gamers wouldn't buy. I've bought a keyboard that was labelled "gamer", despite that it has hard springs and seems to be way better for typing than for gaming;
[1nickt]: I though the gamers like that because they bash the keys so hard.
[ambrus]: and I've seen motherboards with no fast expansion ports for a video card but built-in hardware RAID advertized as "gaming".
LanX has a shaming laptop
[ambrus]: 1nickt: my impression is that the gamers like the softer springs, because fast reaction time is more important to them then feedback from keypresses to recognize typos.
[1nickt]: Ah, I see. I did read some gamer mag reviews, and yes, they lamented the fact that laptops with no discrete video card are sold as "gaming" hardware.
[1nickt]: But, they do have red keyboard backlighting! And gargoyles on the front, or words like "Maxxx" here and there. They know their demographic!
[1nickt]: True gamers don;t buy Dells, HPs, or Lenovos, I think ;-)
