Update: This is now fully booked. It took about 20 hours to sell out.
In 2007 it took about two days for the same size course to sell out. I
guess it's true that Perl is dying :)
Quoting Dave Cross <dave at dave.org.uk>:
> 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.
> You can book tickets at http://perltraining.eventbrite.co.uk/.
> 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.
