07/06/18 09:46 by Mark Keating (‎mdk‎)

It is a great pleasure to announce that Andrew Solomon (of Geekuni fame) will be holding a BoF and two workshops at this year's Perl Conference. Andrew is also offering some free advance tuition at Geekuni for those who take up a workshop to bring them up to speed fast enough to get maximum value from the workshops.

The BoF has not yet been scheduled but both of Andrew's workshops will be held on Tuesday 14th August 2018.

Growing your Perl Team

How do you grow your Perl team?

There's no question that expanding your Perl team is a challenge and I've seen different approaches including:

and all of these come with their own set of challenges.

This 90 minute BOF is for HR, developers, trainers and recruiters to share their experience and exchange ideas for finding and nurturing Perl talent.

Please drop me a line if you're interested and I'll make sure there's enough snacks and drinks to get the ball rolling!

Crash course - Using databases with DBIx::Class

By Andrew Solomon (‎illy‎)

Date: Tuesday, 14 August 2018 13:30
Duration: 210 minutes
Target audience: Intermediate
Language: English

DBIx::Class is a database framework (a.k.a "Object Relational Mapping" or "ORM") which presents the data as objects and keeps SQL at arm's-length. In this class I'll show you how to use DBIx::Class to make your code easier (and more pleasant) to maintain.

For this course you should be comfortable writing Perl and SQL. As soon as you sign-up for this course I'll give you a 3 month enrolment in Geekuni's online Perl Essentials course so that you can be sure you're on top of Perl and ready for class!

Crash course - Object Oriented Perl 5

By Andrew Solomon (‎illy‎)

Date: Tuesday, 14 August 2018 09:30
Duration: 210 minutes
Target audience: Intermediate
Language: English

Although Perl is famous for its powerful one-liners and quirky syntax, there's also an extensive framework for fully-fledged OO programming.

In this half day class I'll introduce OO programming then take you from the built-in 'bless' through to Moo and Moose frameworks together with types, inheritance, roles and the object lifecycle.

The only requirement is that you're comfortable with non-OO Perl programming. To make sure of that, as soon as you sign-up for this course I'll give you a 3 month enrolment in Geekuni's online Perl Essentials course which has everything you need to know for this class.

p.s. Please bring along your laptop - it'll be very hands-on!
