Perl Course Modules

Fully Bespoke Perl Training

The first option is fully bespoke Perl Training in which original course content is designed and written in conjunction with the client. Everything about such Perl courses is a matter for negotiation between ourselves and the prospective client. In addition to our considerable in-house Perl training resourses, a range of external Perl consultants enable us to cover even the most esoteric of Perl specialisms.

Low Cost Customised Perl Training

We can deliver a high degree of customisation at the same cost as off-the-peg Perl training; by the simple device of mixing and matching pre-prepared Perl course modules.

As with all of our Perl courses, the bulk of that time is given over to practical and graduated exercises.

Most of our Perl course modules are outlined below. They can be combined in different ways to produce a wide range of specialist Perl courses. Our own "off the shelf" Perl courses are, for example, built in this way.

The modules cover Perl 5 and has been taught to users on: Unix, Linux & Microsoft Windows. The modules have been updated to Perl 5.16.

The vast majority of modules and their hands-on exercises are delivered in a quarter day. A few exceptional modules last a half day, because cross-dependencies in their content dictate a specific sequence of progress.
