Perl Teach-In 2012

It's almost five years since we ran the original Perl Teach-In day at  
the BBC. So it's about time that we did another one.

And that's exactly what I'm going to do. I'm running a free, one-day  
Perl course at Google Campus in London on Saturday 4th August.

Last time we ran a course that turned intermediate Perl programmers  
into advanced Perl programmers. This time I'm aiming at the other end  
of the scale. The course is called "Modern Perl for Non-Perl  
Programmers" and it will be aimed at people who haven't written any  
Perl (or who have written very little Perl) and over six hours I'll be  
planning to to persuade them just how useful modern Perl is.

That, of course, means that people on this list aren't really in the  
target audience. But I expect that you all know people who are (it's  
very unlikely that any of you don't know any non-Perl programmers). So  
I'd like to ask for your help in promoting the course. Please share  
the link in as many places as you can think of where non-Perl  
programmers might congregate.
