Just make sure that when your done teaching them, they have something that they can use and show off.

IMHO, a very wise advice!

Database stuff like CD-Collection, Address-Collection, etc. pp. is quiet boring, but maybe I was exposed to too many beginners books for different languages.

If you want to do a real interesting project teach them something they can't do with software bought from the shelf.
Teach them magic.
E.g. Showing them how they as consumers can master the WWW with the help of libwww or WWW:Search could be the killer application for beginners.
If you teach them that everbody can become a magican with the help of perl, they will love it.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
