Assume they will have a basic understanding of Perl syntax, but nothing else. So you can show them how to best get something in and out of a database. Or you could show them how build a simple web app,  munge a log file, or write an IRC bot. Maybe you want to show them all the cool things you can do with tied variables, or why they should choose Moose, Mouse, Moo, or Mo. Someone really should show them how to handle exceptions, write to a log, and do performance profiling. No matter whether you’ve been coding Perl for 3 months or 3 years, you’ve got something to share with the Perl newbies of the world. Submit a talk and help bring someone new into the fold.

This sounds like you're reinventing the beginner track (http://www.yapc2011.us/yn2011/talks#140) from last year's YAPC. Any reason why you decided to invoke NIH? If you're not reinventing it, it doesn't seem at all clear, and I have received no request to gather the slides from last year.
Thanks and best regards,
Chris Nehren
