The best way to learn is by doing.

parkprimus has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have been avoiding databases for a very long time now and I think this year it is time I learn how to write perl progs to interact with db's. I want to learn how write a simple cgi program with a mysql db for back end data. Does any one have any links or google key words for some simple cgi/mysql web app examples. Most my searches pull up php/myslq examples. I hate php by now. Thanks in advanced Parkprimus

    DB != cgi. I suggest the first place to look is in the Tutorials section here at Database Programming.

    Using DBI in a light weight way is pretty easy and there are plenty of monks who can help with that. In like fashion, cgi is a very frequent topic of discussion here. However, it is probably much easier to approach the two areas one at a time. Combining them later on will be a snap, but learning two quite different and essentially unrelated things at the same time is likely to be a little fraught!

    The DBI docs on CPAN provide some basic examples: Outline Usage
    Search on Google: DBI examples
