For me the cookbook was enough. I was out looking for a MUD to hack away on, and found one in Perl. Well it used this module POE, that I hadn't used before. Between code in the MUD (which just plain didn't work, but got the point across) and the cookbook, it was enough to get moving. What really sent it home was using the chat server example to start in on my own MUD.
So what I'm saying is that I haven't found any documentation that is a gentle introduction to POE ala the Llama book. I have found that the documentation is excellent once you understand how POE is put together and why things work the way they do.
There was another thread not too long where I stated I was interested in starting a POE Tutorial here at the monastary. I still am, but have been too busy hacking away on the MUD to get rolling on it. I guess I wouldn't mind maybe sharing email addresses with some other monks if they are interested in starting in on it with me, and that will provide just enough motivation to get rolling ;) /msg me if anyone is interested
