Randal L. Schwartz is a two-decade veteran of the software industry — skilled in software design, system administration, security, technical writing, and training. He has coauthored the "must-have" standards: Intermediate Perl, Learning Perl, Learning Perl for Win32 Systems, and Effective Perl Programming, as well as writing regular columns for PerformanceComputing, SysAdmin, and Linux magazines. He's also a frequent contributor to the Perl newsgroups and the "Perl Monastery" community (perlmonks.org), and has moderated comp.lang.perl.announce since its inception. His offbeat humor and technical mastery have reached legendary proportions worldwide (but he probably started some of those legends himself). Randal's desire to give back to the Perl community inspired him to help create and provide initial funding for The Perl Institute. He is also a founding board member of the Perl Mongers (perl.org), the worldwide Perl grassroots advocacy organization. Since 1985, Randal has owned and operated Stonehenge Consulting Services, Inc.
Since 1992, Randal has been developing Perl courseware and providing training to Fortune 500 companies across the United States, and training other trainers to do likewise.
