This brings up the question of
who certifies the certifiers.
In some fields, this question has a widely-known answer.
Do any widely-recognized meta-certifiers
evaluate Perl certificates?
in reply to Expert programmer's certification
I have interviewed more than a few Perl programmers,
and it was not difficult to assess Perl skill.
If a candidate were to list a certificate on a resume,
my expectations would rise,
and I would expect good answers.
The certification would show confidence in Perl,
so I would feel
free to ask more difficult questions.
It should work perfectly the first time! - toma
