[Thamesvalley-pm] calling all Perl newbies!

Hi Adam/All,

It'd be great to have a noob session or two. Or a segment at meetings  
for noobs.
What I have always found difficult is developing a good approach,  
which is partly down to lack of experience.

A mentor system in the PM might be cool?
A way of getting hooked up with someone like yourself, who can help  
guide us newbies in the right direction. Both in terms of Perl itself  
but also in terms of the wider aspects of development and the  
community. Like how not to ask dumb questions on Perlmonks and get - 
XP'd to within an inch of taking up .net   :)

Just food for thought,
