Training Courses - Mastering Vim and NewPerl
May, 3rd, 2012 (Thursday): Mastering Vim
It may not be true that most humans only use 10% of their brains,
but it's definitely true that most programmers who use vi or
Vim only use about one tenth of the power of those editors.
This tutorial explores some of the lesser-known but amazingly useful
features of Vim. Topics Covered
May, 4th, 2012 (Friday): NewPerl
This one-day tutorial provides a detailed introduction to the new
and improved features of these four modern versions of Perl 5,
along with practical examples of how they can improve the
performance, robustness, and maintainability of your code. Topics Covered
Both courses will be given in English.
