Helping Chinese Colleagues Learn Perlby cmv (Chaplain)
|on Dec 04, 2007 at 15:12 UTC||Need Help??|
cmv has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have a need to help some colleagues in China learn Perl. They are already well educated programmers, and are good English speakers (although are more comfortable in their native language, naturally). I would like to get them onboard with Perl basics as quickly as possible, so we can start working on a project together.
How can I help them towards this goal?
So far, they have turned up a translated version of the Camel book in Chinese (3rd edition), which I have recommended they acquire. Obviously I will tell them about this site. There seems to be a good O'Reilly website in China for perl. That's about all the help I can dig up with supersearch and google (maybe I'm just bad at forming searches...).
I suspect we will be having some face-to-face meetings as well, but my thought is to get them started with the basics, first.
Any thoughts, hints, war-stories are appreciated!
