in reply to This year I plan to learn about:

I plan to "learn" perl. I worked my way through the llama mid year 2006 and really enjoyed it. I then tried to read the camel and was just lost. I finally found the alpaca and tried, but just fell out of learning.

This year, I plan to get through the alpaca and the camel. Also, since I picked up perl just to learn how to program, I plan to come up with a couple projects just to make sure I 'get somewhere' with all my reading!

If anyone is just learning and happens to be in the PDX area, drop me a line and maybe we can become study buddies! I can be reached via email at perl (at) nemlu dot com

Here's to everyone enjoying a great 2007!

    Do you go to the Portland Perl Mongers meetings? They're probably one of the most active groups in the world (seriously). They also have some of the most well-known Perl hackers on the planet. That's a fantastic resource.

    And of course they have a mailing list. Heck, we have quite a few hackers outside of Portland who sign up for this list just to keep their finger on the pulse (and unlike, much of the conversation's about Perl :) Of course, since I've fled the country, perhaps I'm not really a member any more, but it's the thought that counts.


    New address of my CGI Course.

    Yes, I attended a perl mongers meeting. The one I went to was led by Chromatic. Sadly, it was largly over my head. However, I think I'll give it another try as the next meeting is on the 10th.
    Thanks for the comment!
