Laziness, impatience, and hubris, summed up as much as possible in 5 weeks.
Class starts at 6:00PM (18:00) in 1-115. The setting is laid back and open; however, much material will be covered. References, OOP, modules, closures, infinite lists and other complex data structures, CPAN, and much more will be covered.
We are going at a very fast pace. If I ever seem unprepared, it is only because you have learned too much. Likewise, there will be much information for me to post here. Read and learn all you can, and always ask questions for when something doesn't make sense. Try as much of the homework as you have time for. Happy hacking!
OOP? I didn't understand OO until a decade after I taught this.
