in thread PERL tutorial (Very Urgent)

Maybe, maybe not... but don't you use modules made by someone else and be paid for that work ?
Sure this guy need some quick help and his request is near than homework question... but I don't think it is the same thing...

Re: (3) PERL tutorial - on prepping presentations
by Beatnik (Parson) on May 22, 2001 at 18:57 UTC
    There's a thing called satisfaction... and it feels great.

    Why I would write my own slides/texts instead of already existing texts, has to do with satisfaction.
    Yes, my slides might suck; yes, they might have loads of stuff missing.
    BUT also: yes, I learned a bit more while writing and explaining; yes, it feels great that effort 'pays off'
    If you are not confident about your material, how can you expect your pupils to listen to you?

    I'm sure Lincoln Stein, dominus , Larry Wall and merlyn have great powerpoint presentations on the subject but what good are they if the person presenting them doesn't fully understand 'em? vaidhyakrish stated 2 things: He know some perl and he needed the tutorials fast. I doubt anyone will be able to answer all questions when using a premade presentation, on an unfamiliar topic.

    as a sidenote:I told vaidhyakrish in the CB how I normally go about writing texts/prepping slides. He didn't think that was much help.
    disclaimer (& update): I have no proof whatsoever that Lincoln, Larry, merlyn or dominus use MS Powerpoint for their presentations :)

    ... Quidquid perl dictum sit, altum viditur.
      I'm sure Lincoln Stein, dominus , Larry Wall and merlyn have great powerpoint presentations{...}
      I'm not sure about Lincoln or MJD, but I'm pretty sure that neither Larry nor I touch PowerPoint for any purpose other than to look at other people's presentations thrown at us. I'd never source a long-term training class in PowerPoint. Yuck.

        I confess :) I generalized a bit... but I did find some YAPC related pictures of you doing a presentation :) I didn't zoom in enough to verify if it was powerpoint :)

    The difference between this request and homework is that a student is supposed to do the homework himself to help him learn. A teacher does not prepare Powerpoint viewgraphs to help him learn. If the slides are in the public domain and some monks know where the slides are then I say go for it.

    I consider this request to be a very appropriate use of PM, and I am glad that the requester was able to find the assistance here that he needed.
