When you talk about CPAN, don't forget to focus on real-life situations. Too often people get carried away with Acme-modules and other not-very-useful modules. Teach your students how to recognize a good module. ::Simple modules are good (well, most of them), and often provide more than enough functionality.

Your doesn't include style yet. Style is very important, and not always (certainly not in business environments) a personal choice. You could integrate this with the editor configuration section.

What training do YOU need?

I need to be trained in coding simpler. I use thinks like map, binary operators, tied hashes, globs, references and multi-level datastructures a lot, and it's confusing for beginning coders. And I should learn to comment more.

Oh, and in your half-day DBI session, please mention DBIx::Simple once or twice ;)
