I think we should have a node in either the tutorials or
library nodes with a suggested reading list.
I know that our library has most of the good docs, but
not many beginners know that they should read them. If we
post a "Suggested Reading List", we will be able to give
someone a reference point from which to ask follow-up questions.
It gets frustrating to say "RTFM" when the "FM" has all
of the right answers, but no newbies know to go there.
Any other thoughts? I know that any aspiring perl person
should know to read these, but sometimes, someone has to be
We could also consider challenges to new monks. If a new
monk has read the suggested reading, and they can answer a
few short questions about the reading and perl in general,
we can allow them to go to 3rd level or something. Just a
random thought. . .
