CIW PERL SPECIALIST

The Perl Specialist course (formerly titled Perl Fundamentals) focuses on the fundamental concepts of the Perl programming language. In this course, you will learn the basic syntax and control structures needed to write Perl scripts. Topics such as data types, flow control, arrays and hashes, regular expressions, and subroutines will be discussed. You will learn how to interact with text files and how to access command line arguments and environment variables. You will also learn about packages and modules, and you will be introduced to database connectivity using Perl. Finally, you will receive an overview about debugging Perl scripts.

Although the knowledge that you gain in this course is designed to widen your understanding of server scripting in general, you will focus on the Perl language in particular.

The CIW Perl Specialist course is for individuals who want to understand how to fully use the features of the Perl programming language in Web application development. These specialized Web language skills can help you begin or grow a career in advanced Web development and technologies:

  • Web developers
  • Software developers
  • Application programmers
  • Client/server developers
  • Desktop publishers

  • Perl language essentials, including syntax, regular expressions and data types
  • Perl code development, including accessing and manipulating files
  • Web site implementation, including database connectivity and debugging techniques

Implement and maintain hypertext-based Web sites using authoring and scripting languages; create Web content; use Web management tools and digital media tools; and apply human-factor principles to design.

No prior knowledge of the Perl programming language is necessary. However, students should be familiar with using the Internet, developing Web pages and configuring networks to a level consistent with that found in the CIW Web Foundations series, and be able to demonstrate Web scripting knowledge equivalent to that found in the JavaScript Specialist course.
