You can find more information on the speaker's site:

In this class software developers will learn what Perl 5 is, and how to use it for everything from scripts to web services.

They will understand how it is evolving as a language, and why there are new projects based on it. Ultimately, the attendees will decide whether they too have Prognostic Evidence of Regressive Laziness.

It will be a hands-on training session going from "Hello World" to experimentation with:

* choosing between Object Oriented systems
* using and writing web services within a Model-View-Controller framework
* installing CPAN modules to make use of various other web services


Experience with:

* Any programming language
* Bash/Linux command line interface
* A text editor like vi/emacs/pico

p.s As a bonus you'll get two free weeks to continue your studies at Geekuni
