The Perl Essentials training course covers the core programming skills and knowledge required to leverage Perl when creating robust data processing applications. Participants will learn how to leverage Perl's strengths in efficiently processing large data sets, including both I/O concerns as well as developing arbitrary forms of data analysis.
While developing these skills, you will also learn how to use Perl as a general-purpose programming language. Special emphasis will be placed on Perl's uncomplicated view of data types and memory management, and the use of regular expressions.
The Perl Essentials training course focuses on Perl and can be taught on Windows or Unix/Linux.

Thanks to Xpertised and the tutor who walked me through all the topics with Practical exposure which is helping me in my current project.
Course was quite helpful in terms of understanding of concepts and practicality. Its really a very friendly environment to learn. The timing were mutually chosen, as we both are working professional.
I am quite satisfied with the course.
