NOTE: All delegates will need to bring a laptop with a recent version of Perl

Description: This course is aimed at people who have a lot of experience of 
Perl but who might not have had the time to keep up to date with the latest 
Perl techniques. This course teaches the latest techniques being used by the 
world's best Perl programmers. This is the knowledge that will enable you to 
describe yourself as a “Perl expert”.

* The latest versions of Perl * Advanced testing * DBIx::Class * Handling 
exceptions * Profiling & benchmarking * Dancer and Catalyst * Object Oriented 
programming with Moose * Web development with Plack 

Tutor: Dave Cross is the owner of Magnum Solutions Ltd, an Open Source 
consultancy company based in London. In 1998 he started london.pm which has 
grown to be one of the largest Perl Mongers groups in the world. He nominally 
led the group until September 2001. Between August 2002 and June 2006 he was 
the Perl Mongers User Groups Co-ordinator for the Perl Foundation. Dave is a 
regular speaker at Perl and Open Source conferences and is often invited to 
present tutorials alongside the main conference. He is the author of "Data 
Munging with Perl" (Manning, 2001) and a co-author of "Perl Template Toolkit" 
(O'Reilly, 2003). Dave lives in SW London. The rumours about gold-plated cats
