Wiki - Master Classes

Similar to last year, there will be two post-conference days of Master classes offered by some of the most notable trainers and authors in the Perl community. The cost is $200 for each two-day offering (well below market). If you're interested in registering for one of these classes, please make sure to choose the registration with the Master Course option. If you will be utilizing the on-campus housing (dorms) during the conference and will need similar accommodations during your class, please follow the steps on the extended housing page. If you've registered and purchased a Master Class, please add your name to the Master Class Attendance page under the appropriate class.

Stonehenge Consulting

Stonehenge Consulting will be offering two 2-day classes. One offered by Randal Schwartz and Intermediate Perl, offered by brian d foy.

Perl Best Practices (1-day) and Persistent Perl Data (1-day)

Trainer: Randal Schwartz

Perl Best Practices
Damian Conway's "Perl Best Practices" is a great book, but it's 542 pages, and
who has time to read? Join Randal Schwartz as he condenses the book into a
short digestible one-day presentation, along with the good, bad, and ugly
items about making your Perl less like spaghetti and more like... rigatoni!

Persistent Perl Data
Any significant Perl program eventually has to store and retrieve data outside
its own memory space. Join Randal Schwartz as he explores the various
mechanisms ranging from simple data files through DBI and the various
object-relational database mappings such as Class::DBI and Rose::DB::Object.

Intermediate Perl

Trainer: brian d foy
This course uses O'Reilly's "Intermediate Perl" by Randal L. Schwartz, brian d foy, and Tom Phoenix. It's suitable for students who have completed the Learning Perl (Llama) course, or who otherwise have a good background in the basics of Perl.

Using the appropriate data structure can greatly simplify development and maintenance of programs. This course covers advanced data structures in Perl.

Large programs — whether written by a single programmer or a team of programmers, each working on discrete yet interdependent libraries, modules, and other program sections — require special programming techniques. The Alpaca course will show you how to keep your Perl program running smoothly even when it must grow past the 100-lines-of-code barrier.
