Order Programming Perl in the .NET Environment

Item Description: A mystical journey for all of you Perl Monks thru all that is programming Perl in .NET

Review Synopsis: This book rules!

I really loved this book! The authors seem extremely knowledgeable on both .NET and Perl. I think that Perl is great, but I've always had a hard time using Tcl/Tk to do my GUI's. I was a Java Programmer for over three years, and I used that extensively for my GUI's. This book covers how to make GUI's for Perl using .NET very well. Its nice because it uses a C# style to call all of the .NET components, so if you have any familiarity with Java, or C#, you will find this extremely helpful. The book offers truly great insight on all of the aspects of programming in the .NET environment with Perl, covering basic Perl programming, Object-Oriented Perl programming, working with CPAN, Programming with PerlNET, working with and creating .NET components, working with the .NET framework with special emphasis on GUI, Database, and ASP.NET development. I must put special recommendation on this book because the author Yevgeny Menaker has been so helpful guiding me thru, and that's refreshing! SO, what are you waiting for? Go buy this book pronto!

    Well, perhaps you should try Perl/Tk then.... ;-)


      Whatever floats your boat I guess. I've got my Java/C# like function calls so I'm happy.

    I'm not a .NETer, but you might be interested in this recent discussion on kuroshin. .NET Oddities
      Yes, you present a good argument against .NET with this article, but truthfully I just finished a large project with it, and I thought it was pretty slick. Perhaps someday I'll get the time to learn something else for GUI's in Perl, but until then, I'm very comfortable and happy with .NET. Its great for anyone who knows Java and C#. I'm pretty new to Perl, so its a lot easier for me to take it a spoonful at a time if you know what I mean!
