Well, yes. Actually in conversation on Thursday we came up with about  
four subtly different courses - all of which could be useful to  
different groups of people.

The question is really which one would be the best one to choose for  
the first free course that we give.

Personally, I'm leaning towards something that is largely "Advanced  
Perl Programming" with large side orders of "Perl Best Practices",  
"Mastering Perl" and "The Pragmatic Programmer".

Might be a bit much for a one day course tho' :-/
