#1 Learn Perl 5 By Doing It
Learn Perl by actually creating useful, working Perl programs for everything from web scraping to fixing your data.
Discover some of the amazing things you can do with Perl 5, including downloading text and images from the Internet (just like Zuckerberg in The Social Network), reformatting data, importing and exporting data to and from databases, sysadmin-type tasks like renaming or moving files, fixing even huge amounts of data quickly and even creating web CGI scripts. In this course you’ll also learn how to use regular expressions, those unbelievably useful little things that have now made their way into almost every serious programming language, yet remain the bête noire of many a developer.
#2 Perl Programming for Beginners
This course has been specifically designed for those who have an interest in programming, but still consider themselves to be beginners. Those who already have programming experience but want to learn the basics and concepts of Perl will also find it perfectly suitable.
With over 70 lectures and 7.5 hours of content, this is a true crash course that will get you up to speed in no time. You’ll get to grips with Perl fundamentals and design a Perl application, as well as creating automated applications that do the work for you and advanced text analyser applications. But don’t worry – you’ll work from the bottom up and progress at a pace that suits you, starting off with installation and creating more complex applications with each stage.
Along the way you’ll pick up various Perl fundamentals like scalar data, arrays and lists, subroutines, input and output, hashes, and regular expressions before tackling your final project. By the end of the course, you’ll be ready to use Perl in a wide range of real world applications.
#3 Learning Perl by Example
By using examples to illustrate features and functions you will quickly learn Perl
In today’s world, ETL (Extract, Transform and Load data) is a driving force to facilitate development of business intelligence and analytics across information delivery, analysis and integration. Perl can be used with this high level software to create the underlying infrastructure for ETL.
> Use Perl to create database functions that can be combined into one tool to pull data out of one database and place it into another.
> Perl can define standard metrics, create advanced calculations, analytical functions to enhance data.
> This self-guided, introductory course provides the foundation for performing the above functions.
LEARN PERL BY EXAMPLE
Imagine, design, implement, test, and roll out new features in your role as a Perl Programmer!
Have you ever wanted to find or extract some information in a huge document without needing to read though it? Do you want to manipulate, reformat, or extract text (or binary data) from a document that is not human readable? Then this course is for you. You can extract, transform and load data into a spreadsheet or a database. You are only limited by your imagination.
