My company just got bought and is basically closing down everything but a few people to help with the migration. I was one of the lucky ones (relatively speaking) in that I am on the migration team. Perl is not much loved in my current location( Tucson, AZ) so to find a new position I need to learn a new language to make myself more marketable.
Given my current location and strong Perl background, what should I look into learning? I am looking for something that would be complimentary with my current skill set rather than so obtuse it would a struggle to learn.
