Perl Programming Training
The Perl Programming Language
Perl (the 'Practical Extraction And Reporting Language', originally called 'Pearl') is a programming language written by and for working programmers: it aims to be practical (easy to use, efficient, complete) rather than beautiful (tiny, elegant, minimal).
Perl is the language of choice for CGI scripting and web development, but is at least as effective and popular for general text handling, system administration, database access, system interaction, XML processing, system integration, e-commerce and a host of other applications.
Characteristics which make Perl so powerful and adaptable:
- Cross-compatible implementations on all major platforms
- Module-based specialisation keeps the core language lean and mean, while making available a large library of reusable library code
- A comprehensive suite of tools for creating, using, managing, and extending features

Bespoke Perl Courses
GBdirect also write fully-bespoke Perl courses for clients. If you have such a requirement and the budget for it, please contact our course developers for advice and support in assembling a course with appropriate content, speed of progress, prerequisite knowledge, and consistent subject matter, etc.
For many years now, GBdirect's consultants have been implementing industrial strength Perl solutions. That experience directly informs our Perl training courses and modules.
All of our Perl courses teach you how to select and apply the best Perl tools and techniques to do a specific job.
We concentrate on instilling the fundamental techniques and problem-solving philosphy of Perl, rather than on merely visiting every topic in the language. The landscape of Perl is simply too vast to explore its every nook and cranny in that way.
Whilst our Perl courses highlight the key landmarks and gotchas in each specialist application, their emphasis is on Perl map-reading skills; providing the platform for independent learning into the future.
If you are new to programming or web development and are contemplating the use of Perl we suggest that you read our notes on introductory courses first.
