I’m pleased to announce that brian d foy has agreed to instruct a 2-day workshop before YAPC::NA 2012. This workshop will take people with little or no development experience to novice programmers in two days. This workshop will teach basics such as data structures, conditions, loops, and subroutines. And, of course, the language he’ll use to teach the course will be Perl!
The cost for this workshop will be $500 per person. However, we’re working with our sponsors to be able to provide some needs-based scholarships for those unable to find the funds elsewhere. This workshop is also a very inexpensive way for businesses to add a new skill to some employees.
