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

<p>
Welcome to the Perl Beginners' Site. The mission of perl-begin.org is to
provide Perl newcomers with the most high-quality and accessible material
and references for learning the Perl progrmaming language as easily, as 
accurately and as efficiently as possible. 
</p>

<p>
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 at people who
learn Perl after knowing one or more languages, or at people who are
learning Perl as their first language.
</p>

<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.
