> Subject: Online Perl courses for PM list Newbies
> First of all - apologies to San Francisco, London, Los Angeles, DFW,
> Sydney, Vienna, Kochi, Melbourne, Dresden and Niederrhein who Google
> tells me already know about Geekuni...
> For the last few years I've been developing Geekuni to provide an
> automated online 'tutor-bot' to help new users learn Perl.
> I've been beta testing it on people at the London Perl Workshop as
> well as graduate recruits at NET-A-PORTER - one of London's biggest
> Perl shops. In November it went live to the public.
> Geekuni provides hands-on courses where people write Perl code on an
> AWS instance and the tutor-bot reads and runs their code to give
> them immediate feedback. This way, when they come to asking questions
> on the various Perl forums they're past the point where they need to
> be informed of things like:
> - strict and warnings are there to stop them shooting themselves in the
> - they shouldn't confuse lists with arrays;
> - a reference isn't just something for your CV;
> If this sounds like it would help for a smooth transition into your
> Perl community, please point your newbies at geekuni.com
> To make them feel even more welcome, this coupon
> will give them a 15% discount on their first month.
> If you'd like to check it out before giving it your stamp of approval,
> please send me an email (andrew at geekuni.com) telling me you're a PM
> group manager and I'll give you access.
> Kind regards,
> Andrew Solomon
