in reply to Perl tutorial building on Python skills?

It might require some unlearning or deprogramming. I've had success in the past with someone experienced in another language, and just going through with them in a manner that has them come up with a programming task (or idiom.) in the their strong language; then showing them the Perl idiom. General concepts about dynamic languages in your case sounds like it should not be a barrier. This relies on them being proficient with another language (here Python); and the stronger the better.

Another thing that comes to mind that might be helpful is, Rosetta Code.

    Thanks, I have some experience in Perl training, but I'm supposed to "crash teach" him via video conferencing.

    So I was hoping for some overview which helps me understanding which points to address.

    I wouldn't call me a python expert, tho I'm often surprised what self proclaimed python experts don't know...

    It would be easier if it was JavaScript, I have that tutorial already ready in my mind...

    Update

    Ha! there is plenty of such material for JS I could built on this.... :)

      In the vein of the traditional Mathematician's answer, then, first do a "JavaScript for Python Programmers" bit, and then proceed from there!

        you probably missed my update, there is already plenty! :)
