in thread What can bring the excitement back to Perl?

Perl programming in Google is only done in the sysadmin parts of the company.

All the serious coding is done in C, Java and Python.

C for the raw speed, Java and Python because they are the members of their class that are easy to instrument, tool, automate and analyse.
