in thread PerlMonks for newbies?

I am confused as to your definition of 'intermediate' then. You want the place to be newbie-based, which, as you outlined, will lead to newbie questions. Why will the intermediate programmers want to stick around if all they do is try to explain how to interpolate variables into strings?

Like others have said, it is a good idea in theory~

And you didn't even know bears could type.

    Why do I run a free Perl programming course? Because it's rewarding. I'm sure for many of the people here it's more about the feeling of reward and worth they get from helping people than what they learn.
      You are running a free Perl programming course? Very interesting. Is the course material somewhere available? I run such a course too in our local computer club and would be interested to exchange views and material. My course is in the Dutch language though.


      A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

        Free Perl Course Project still very much early days with it, but I have plans to take things much further :) Have a look through the Wiki and join the mailing list and we can chat about things.
