<h2 id="about">About</h2>

<p>
Welcome to the unofficial Perl Beginners' Site. This site provides
links and references to on-line and off-line material that can be used
to learn Perl. This site is directed both for people who learn Perl 
after knowing one or more languages, or for people who are learning
Perl as their first language.
</p>

<h2 id="revamp">Site Revamp</h2>

<p>
Recently (as of 26-March-2007), this site has seen a huge revamp. Its look 
and feel has been changed to one based on 
<a href="http://www.oswd.org/design/preview/id/2933">an Open Source 
Web-Design design</a>, and later on its contents were made more accessible,
and more in accordance to 
<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/Files/files/text/TheHackersGuideToMarketing.pdf">some 
good marketing advice</a>.
</p>

<p>
Our agenda now is to finish the content revamp and then start 
publicizing this site better. With the permission of the people of 
<a href="http://www.perlfoundation.org/">the Perl Foundation</a> this site
may hopefully gain a more official status.
