insights into how the class could be improved.

(And if any of you "Perl wizards" are willing to spend the time to attend,
I just might let you in for free, and buy you lunch everyday too!)

Details follow.  Hope to see many of you there!

This course is for Students with previous Perl programming experience
who are ready to go "beyond the basics".

Students will learn to use language features and expert tricks that
allow them to write more compact and efficient programs, and to solve
complex problems more easily.

They'll also acquire new skills that will help them do basic tasks with
greater elegance, security, and "cool-osity"!


Students should have at least 6 months of prior experience with UNIX and
Perl, have Perl skills equivalent to those taught in our Perl Programming
course (http://www/consultix-inc.com/perl.html) be competent users of the
VI editor, and feel comfortable using a command-line interface to UNIX
while writing Perl programs.  The course is intended for programmers,
system administrators, network administrators, data administrators,
and webmasters.


Dr. Tim Maher has been working with the interpreted languages of UNIX for
over 20 years.  He has used them to write many sophisticated applications,
including a user interface for U.C. Berkeley undergraduates and source
code beautifiers for Perl and C++.  As the founder and head of CONSULTIX,
Tim regularly teaches courses on a wide variety of software topics.
