Working in pairs, this workshop will look at some simple coding exercises in Perl and then discuss the proposed solutions and alternatives within the group.

The session will start with some basic theory talking about logic and control structures within Perl and then people will pair up for ten minutes or so to look at an exercises between them.

Following a further theory session, we'll continue to further examine and expand our code and then discuss the solutions within the group and how they could be further expanded.

Once we've looked at our solutions, we'll discuss where and how to get help from the community with issues you have after the workshop.


This workshop is aimed at Perl beginners or those experienced with another language looking to cross train in Perl.

Topics included

Getting started - boilerplate, comments and my first script
Data types - scalars, arrays, hashes and references
Making decisions - looping and flow control
Learning more - the reading list
