Hire a Perl programmer and get a database guru free?
Haven't seen you for a while, how's you new kind of job going? :)
I think especially perl-web-developers usually have a solid knowledge of databases, because nowadays most websites rely on a DB, not on files.
I would agree to such a job, and I don't think you'll have problems to find one. But you definitly should point out in your job-advertisement that perl+SQL (PLSQL or whatever)-Knowledge is required.
Because there are also lots of sysadmin-like perl-coders out there who don't have a clue about DBs.
But it's hard to find a real DB-guru + perl-guru in one, if your budget is low...
