After the last news item, a lot of work was invested on http://perl-begin.org/ , the Perl Beginners' Site. making it even better than it used to be. Here's a summary of the changes: </p> * A testimonials page ( http://perl-begin.org/learn/who-is-using/ ) was added, with some honest-to-God testimonial quotes which are now featured in the Testimonials side-bar. * There's a new IDEs and tools page: http://perl-begin.org/IDEs-and-tools/ , featuring some Integrated Development Environments. * There's a new page sporting links to collections of blogs. * Several new topical pages were added: * * Perl and Databases * * GUI Development in Perl * * Perl for XML Processing * * Debugging * * Object-oriented Programming in Perl * * Using CPAN * A ShareThis ( http://sharethis.com/ ) button was added to the bottom of every page for easy bookmarking and sharing. * Many writing errors (spelling, grammar, syntax, phrasing, etc.) have been corrected by Alan Haggai Alavi ( http://alanhaggai.org/ ). He seems to have a good eye for catching such problems, and I am indebted to him. * Corrected several broken links including those to Ovid's CGI course. -- We hope you enjoy the new Perl Beginners' Site and please recommend it to your friends.
