Learn Perl Online for Free

The Video Screening Room

You don’t have to invest a fortune to get started learning a programming or scripting language. Don’t believe it? Take a look at this free and easy to understand tutorial for learning Perl.

Some of the free computer training videos on YouTube rival the best tutorials you’ll find on paid video websites. Derek Banas’ tutorials recently came to my attention. I particularly like “Learn Perl in One Video” — an hour long, comprehensive tutorial. You can even jump to a particular part of the video from the links in the text description of the video.

Three cheers for high quality, online training for open source software. If you appreciate Derek Banas’ videos you can also give financial support via his Patreon page. If you support him at $3 per month or more you can get access to his exclusive Patreon supporter videos. Hat tip to Joshua Allen Holm, a prolific writer about open source solutions.

Don’t forget to subscribe to Derek Banas YouTube channel to support him in that way too. More than 400,000 people have already done that. Let’s push him over the 500,000 mark.

For the past 10 years, Phil has been working at a public library in the Washington D.C.-area, helping youth and adults use the 28 public Linux stations the library offers seven days a week. He also writes for MAKE magazine, Opensource.com and TechSoup Libraries. Suggest videos by contacting Phil on Twitter or at pshapiro@his.com.

    Absolutely nuts to instruct someone to run a bash script downloaded through curl using a pipe!

    That was within the first two minutes of the video 🙁
