briand d foy is teaching a new master class based on his latest book, Effective Perl Programming, 2nd Edition, and the Effective Perler blog that goes with it. Perl has changed quite a bit since Joseph Hall wrote the first edition of the book over 10 years ago. Josh McAdams and brian d foy have added a lot of new information as well as updated the existing material.

In the two-day class for intermediate Perl programmers, brian will cover selected topics from the book, including:

* Working with Unicode in Perl
* Tricks with filehandles
* New regex features in Perl 5.10 and later
* Playing with pack()
* Using closures to make things simpler
* Managing distributions
* Tricks with testing
* and other topics as time allows
