At a SPUG meeting a few months ago, we mentioned that the UW was
developing an Applied Advanced Perl Programming course for experienced
Perl Programmers to take their programming skills to the next level.  I'm
pleased to announce that the course will be held this Winter (Tuesday
nights, downtown Seattle) and it is open for registration now.

Here is a course description and registration details:

Applied Advanced Perl Programming
Perl is much more than a language for small scripts and web sites. It is
often the best choice for lexical parsing, bioinformatics and dynamically
dispatched object designs. This lecture-based course is for
object-oriented Perl programmers who wish to use advanced techniques to
tackle tough problems in Perl. Course topics include advanced object-
oriented design, inheritance and polymorphism, smart hashes with Tie,
object persistence, operator overloading, advanced text parsing with
grammars and extending a Perl interface to C libraries. Prerequisites:
Experience with Perl object-oriented programming and Perl data structures,
and access to a computer running Perl 5.6.1 or later, with internet
access. Bringing a laptop to class is encouraged, but not required.

Noncredit, 3 CEUs
10 Sessions, Tue., 6:30-9:30 p.m., Jan. 6-Mar. 9; $569. Location: Downtown
Seattle. Doug Treder, senior software engineer, Amazon.com.
