Following is a short description of the course and some details.
To expose the audience to the Perl programming language
and its capabilities.
For example, researchers can use it for rapid prototyping
and development, which are useful if you want to show something
works without spending weeks on it.

Faculty and Staff
If we still have room, anyone with some background using some programming
languages (for example, C) can take the course.

practically, learning the language from scratch.
These 3-4 lessons will take place in the same week
