All good stuff.  We've found that we get most
questions from programmers we're converting
to Perl about references.

I even think it's worth spending some time going over
just arrays and hashes.  I'd bring in the functional
programming techniques to an array training.

Of course depends on the level that you're targetting,
but it's easy to just learn some basics and not really
get familiar with manipulating those structures.
