Earlier this fall I got a reason to start learning XS (in order to write
the module Net::LDNS, now on CPAN). Since I found the documentation
available to be fairly good, but somewhat difficult to access for a
complete beginner, I tried to write down what I learned as a guide for
other beginners. There's explanations of concepts, code examples, a tiny
little bit about Perl internals and recommendations about which
documentation to read in which order.

You can find it on my work's blog
(if you go there the hits will make the guy caring for said blog happy),
or in less javacript-requiring fashion on Github at
