<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"> <html lang="en"> <head> <title>Sine Bio</title> </head> <body> Hi brothers monks,
I'm a newbie in Perl as I discovered it one week ago (16/02/07) during a four days training session in Melbourne Australia.
I really enjoyed what I learnt there. The course was done by two really knwoledgable and good trainers (I'm not going to put any company name as I don't know if it is permitted here:-))) ).
The thing is that I want to learn more about Perl and at the end becoming a good Perl developer. There are a lot of chances that I won't be using Perl that much in my daily work and that in two or three months I'll forget all I have learnt during that training session.
That's why I'm looking for to be involved in any kind of projects related to Perl. I would love to help (for free) in any way I can (testing, documentation, writing code...) just to help me improve my knowledge of Perl.
If any of you monks need a perl newbie trully willing to help, please contact me as it will be my pleasure to be involved. Or if you know some places where I can find such projects where I can be involved, please let me know.
To help you have an idea of what I have learnt, here is a list of topics my training covered:
- the history and philosophy behind the Perl programming language; - how to write simple Perl s‎crip‎ts and run them from the command-line; - how to use Perl's inbuilt help system, perldoc; - how to use warnings and strict to catch common errors and enforce good programming style; - about Perl's three main data types and how (and when) to use them; - about Perl's most common operators and functions; - how to use Perl's conditional and looping constructs; - how to write and use subroutines; - about Perl's powerful regular expression capabilities and how to apply them to your problem; - how to create, dereference and use references to build complex data structures which allow multi-dimensional arrays and hashes. - how to write and use Perl modules and packages; - how to use Perl objects; - how to interact with the file system to read and write files, and read directories; - how to pass commands to the system for execution and the pitfalls therein;
Thanks in advance for your help.
Cheers
