Education at Perl Wiki Edit – Contributing educators at all levels of Perl expertise are needed for the Perl Wiki:University University now available here.
Wikiversity | WEEK | &...
The Happy Valley of the global Perl Wikicommunity
Curriculum developement Edit Template talk:Curriculum
Perl Education Consortium Edit Perl Wiki has the freedom and drive to use its space at Perl.Wikia.com to develop a praxis and practicum for learning and applying what we learn to real-world needs.
MediaWiki environment presents a remarkable opportunity for educators both inside and outside of the world of Wikipedia:Computer science and Wikipedia:Information technology. Forming working relationships with other groups that share the MediaWiki context is an essential directive for Perl.Wikia.com.
Wikimedia Foundation Edit Wikimedia Foundation:
Wikibooks | Wikiversity |
Wikipedia | Wiktionary
Perl Wiki will maintain a close relationship with Wikimedia projects as a kind of "two-way street" drawing upon and learning from the current content there, while contributing to its completion in terms of siting sources and verifying references that relate to aspects of programming especially where perl is involved.
Perl Wiki was concieved in some part by discussions at META as part of the program in conjunction with m:Communitas! Wikiversity. Our principle contact at Wikiversity is Cormac Lawler.
We are also conversant with the Staff at
Wikipedia, Wiktionary and other Wikimedia projects.
Wikia and WikiProjects Edit
The Perl WikiProject is especially tied to community-building efforts across the Wikia planet and to
WikiProject assessment techniques at Wikipedia. Developing social software that allows seemless integration between WikiProjects across . edu, . org, . net, . gov and . com domain contexts is essential.
Social software that can span distances, cross language barriers and tactfully cross borders and boundaries is a challenge that perl can accept.
Perl.Wikia.com is a
Virtual community of practice.
The Perl Foundation Edit The Perl Foundation is dedicated to the advancement of the Perl programming language through open discussion, collaboration, design, and code. Those also happen to be the pillars of the Perl Wikia.
The Perl Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization based in Holland, Michigan.
The Perl Wikia has no formal association with The Perl Foundation at this time. But hey... that could change. posted: 15:51, 6 October 2006 (UTC) by
CPAN - Perl Monks & Mongers Edit Learn Perl at learn.perl.org
Perl people: Monks | Mongers | CPAN
Perl books are available online in PDF. Perl is distributed freely online at CPAN
CPAN: POE:: Component:: WikiaPerl, if it works, might grant us a shot at being officially recognized as the Wikian Perl Mongers chapter.

Critical thinking Edit Perl Wiki:Opinion -cq-
Perl.Wikia.com is a place where freedom of thought and expression are cherished.
Forum:Debate has been instituted for comparative discourse about Perl versus PHP, Python, Java, Visual Basic and other programming environments. We are of course a bit biased but... still civil.
Perl_Opinion section was originally removed from the Wikipedia:Perl article by the Wikipedians, and that section of their article can be found here at Wikia:c:Perl:Perl_Opinion. This valuable original content from Wikipedia is being protected for historical purposes, and that original content was used as the seed for starting the Wikia:c:Perl:Opinion, Wikia:c:Perl:Pro_Opinions and Wikia:c:Perl:Con_Opinions articles now available here.

Opinion articles before you begin participating in the current debates held in the Debate forum now available here.
