Learning Perl

The following list presents several (local) resources that one can use to get help about Perl. For general and international resources see the Perl Beginners Site.

Online Tutorials and Guides
Apart from the many fine books you can lend from our library, there are also several free online books available at the library.
If you're a student at the Weizmann Institute of Science, there are two Perl related courses offered there: Perl Programming Course for Bioinformatics and Internet, and Object-Oriented and Database Programming for Bioinformatics and Internet.
In addition, the following companies offer commercial Perl courses: Perl Training Israel (PTI), Interbit, and Hi-Tech College.
Gabor Szabo also maintains a world wide list of Perl training companies.
The Human Touch
There are several Perl specific mailing lists listed on our mailing lists page. In addition, there is also a Hebrew Programming under Linux web forum on Whatsup where you can post Perl related questions.
Of course, you can always come to our meetings.
