Zenzizenzizenzic has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I will be running some classes for my work on Perl. These will be for developers fresh from school who have never used Perl before. I would appreciate if I could get some suggestions as to items to be sure to address.
Will obviously be covering the use strict ans warnings.
First session(s) will be mainly dealing with reading Perl, as some my other team members will be there for learning how to port exisitng Perl scripts to Python, but eventually new development will be covered.
Our normal Perl usage is for small scripts and interal web services.
