The Perl Programming Boot Camp training course is an intensive program created to rapidly create functionally productive object oriented Perl programmers, using the Perl programming language. Due to the nature of the Perl Boot Camp, not every topic covered will be discussed in an in-depth fashion. If you are looking for in-depth coverage in a specific topic area, consider taking the traditional course.
Perl Programming Boot Camp examines the core concepts, language syntax, and APIs required to build modern Perl applications and how to use it effectively in many application environments. In addition to teaching the basics, such as data types, operators, flow control, and subroutines, the course goes into great detail on using arrays and hashes for complex data manipulation, regular expressions for advanced text processing, and Perl’s built-in object-oriented features for basic OO programming.
The Perl Boot Camp training course is delivered in 45 hours over 5-days.
