The most important part is the DVD, with over 4 hours of video tutorials. Peter Scott shows that he is a good teacher. The 8 chapters have clear titles. Scott introduces Perl elegantly and takes the starting programmer by the hand, helping to find Perl.
The beginning is easy. The more difficult parts follow soon and Scott handles those well. Each chapter consists of two parts: the first part is an introduction, where you can see Scott himself. The second part is a presentation, with computer screens added to them, mostly of the editor and the program output. At the end, the new Perl programmer knows the basics, knows how to start programming.
I did (and still do) have a big problem with the videos on the DVD. I am a Linux user and use movie players like VLC, Totem and Mplayer. The last one has the quirkiest interface, but is the only one with which I can view the videos without a nasty flashing of the video. I have no idea what causes the problem, I tried to change the codecs, I tried to convert the videos, no help. It is not a know problem (well, it is not mentioned on Scott's website or the website of Addison-Wesley).
Basic stuff with very solid instruction. If he ever comes out with a follow-on package, I am definitely up for it.
The lessons involve writing several short programs. A program typically focuses on one aspect of the language. A very bite-sized approach so that you can easily stay on message and understand the lesson.
Perhaps of necessity, the lessons describe using perl in a procedural fashion, like C or Fortran. So you learn how to write and call subroutines. It is only in the last lesson that you get glimpses of more advanced ideas, like object oriented coding, and using perl in the context of Web cgi. If you can get this far and follow everything, then you are ready to 'graduate' and get a full text on perl.
This book is a great supplement to all the Perl books out there. This is a lot cheaper than enrolling in an online course which is exactly what this is. If you are trying to learn Perl: Use this book/video and a few other supplements and complete the exercises in your books. Then signup for an online Perl community so you can email people questions. That is a wonderful way to learn Perl online, interactively.
The best way to learn Perl is to take a course at your college. Demand that your college teach Perl. It is a great language for programming. Takes about 6 months of solid time to learn it fairly well. That is very fast compared to other languages.
