Power of Perl :: Learn Basic and Advanced Perl Programming
What you'll learn
- Thoroughly Learn, Develop, Test, and Hone Programming Skills in Perl
- Prepare for a Job in the IT/Semiconductor Industry
- Be prepared to face an Interview with confidence
- Use Perl to solve important problems
- Knowledge of at-least one high level programming language (say C, C++, etc.)
- Passion for Learning and Programming
- Determination to Code with Focus
- Interest to learn Basic and Advanced Perl
Perl stands for Practical Extraction and Reporting Language. It was developed in 1987 by Larry Wall, and it has evolved over time. It’s a High-Level Scripting Language supporting powerful regular expressions.
- It starts with a video on how to get a working Perl setup and progresses on to discuss very basic concepts in the beginning. Moving further, it sheds light on more advanced Perl constructs and capabilities, which are more useful and relevant to the present day Industry.
- It's pretty hands-on course where each line of the code is discussed in-depth and impact of change in any line of the code is shown real-time on a Perl Interpreter.
- Perl is used extensively in the Digital VLSI industry. It’s used across multiple verticals - Design, Design Verification, Automation, CAD, Tools, etc. and hence this course is useful for anyone and everyone looking to learn about (or enhance) Perl, and land a Job in the Industry (Semiconductor or IT)
- Regular Expressions,
- File Read and Write Operations,
- Excel SpreadSheet Read and Write Operations,
- Interfacing with MSSQL databases,
- Generating HTML formatted content, and
- Creating/Using Perl Modules

Robin is an Design Verification Architect and specializes in Functional Verification, Power Aware Design Verification, UPF Design, and DV Left Shift Methodologies. He has extensive hands-on experience working with teams and stakeholders across multiple Geo’s and Time zones (viz. India, US, Canada, Israel, UK, Europe, Ireland, and Singapore). He has successfully lead (first pass Silicon) end-to-end product verification lifecycle at Subsystems and SoC levels for multiple generations of Server, Client Graphics, Mobile, and IoT products.
Presently working at NUVIA (now acquired by Qualcomm), he has previously worked on Intel GPUs/Exascalers, ARM Subsystems, and Qualcomm Modem/Mobile SoCs. At NUVIA, he defined and built functional and Low Power Design Verification infrastructure ground up at IP, SS, and SoC levels and was instrumental in developing multiple left shift methodologies.
Robin is a well known face in the semiconductor industry. He is a published Author (bestseller book), and Instructor of multiple courses (among Top 3% worldwide). He is Technical Program Committee member for DVCON India and has multiple Technical Paper and Poster Presentations spanning across DV, with his most recent presentation being on “Low Power DV Sign-off of Complex SoCs” in CDNLive Bangalore 2022.
Robin has extensive experience mentoring/coaching Junior/Senior Engineers in the team, hiring NCGs/Experienced Engineers, and line management.
