Hi Wil!

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...

    Yeah, you're right. I'm going to have a difficulty finding any sort of 'guru' when the budget is low. But, I think, as you pointed out, the wording on the job advert is important here. I guess I need to stress that we're looking for a web-Perl developer that has experience delivering a database backend site.

    Good point about the 'sysadmin-perl' and web-perl guy. There's a definite distinction and I need to clarify that. Not being too stereo-typical, but I am likely to be looking at an older person when looking for a sysadmin-perl-guru (who has no idea on how to connect web to database to perl)?

    Thanks.
