Effective Perl Programming master class at Frozen Perl

At Frozen Perl 2010 in Minneapolis, I'm teaching a new master class based on my latest book, Effective Perl Programming, 2nd Edition. Perl has changed quite a bit since Joseph Hall wrote the first edition over 10 years ago. Josh McAdams and I have added a lot of new information as well as updated the existing material. In the one-day class for intermediate Perl programmers, I'll cover selected topics from the book, including:
  • Working with Unicode in Perl
  • Tricks with filehandles
  • New regex features in Perl 5.10 and later
  • Playing with pack()
  • Using closures to make things simpler
  • and other topics as time allows
Although the book hasn't been published yet, it is available for pre-order, and attendees to the class can get a sneak peek at the working manuscript as well as a soft copy of the course slides.
