Beginning Perl (Wrox) is now released
I'm quite happy to say that Beginning Perl has now been released. You can buy it on Amazon or a number of other online bookstores, and I'm guessing a few local bookstores, too. There are also a couple of translation deals, too, but they're not finalized, so I'm unsure if I can talk about them.
If you're interested in Perl but worried about the title, the book actually takes you all the way through OO programming and even has introductory sections on Catalyst, DBIx::Class, Plack, and other tools. It's fairly comprehensive.
