Re: Updating my confidence in my Perl knowledge
in thread Updating my confidence in my Perl knowledge
I regret that I have but one vote to give to this reply and particularly to this: The desire and interest to learn is ultimately more important than confidence.
I learned a lot by spending a couple of years trying (and sometimes failing) to answer questions here at the Monastery. Aside from that, almost all I've learned about Perl has come from using it for my own projects and those of my employers. I've learned a little by just reading things I found interesting, but everything else has been from having some immediate application for the knowledge I sought.
