in reply to Re: Easiest city to find Perl work:in thread Easiest city to find Perl work:
Now that is the problem with Perl (A real Non-technical problem although). Companies don't get Perl programmers like Java guys.
Can anybody tell us Why so..????
I'd put it down to two reasons.
Because Perl has proved so accessible (well done Larry :-) you get more people applying to Perl jobs with low general programming skills. This makes it harder to separate the wheat from the chaff.
New developers aren't seeing a long term career in Perl 5 so are concentrating on other languages.
