Hard to find Perl programmers...

in reply to What is the state of Perl?

Well when we were trying to find a competent Perl programmer 3 months ago we had a really hard time. Granted the economy has changed since then, but anyone who was any good at Perl was being snapped up very quickly. Also looking at resumes there were a lot of Perl projects that had been started in the last 6 months to a year. Also there have been tons of Perl books published recently (although the publishing industry has a long lead time so that may not be significant either).

So based on all of that I would guess that perl is still quite happily hopping along.

Remember too that PM is not exactly an unbiased set of people to ask about the health of Perl.

[ambrus]: 1nickt: the tea didn't have sugar or honey or lemon or milk. or even caffeine in a significant quantity. it's really "colored water", warm water with some fruit smell to make it more pleasant than ordinary warm water.
[ambrus]: 1nickt: in theory, it shouldn't hurt the electronics, but also could temporarily cause problems until it dries, and the inside of the keyboard doesn't dry quickly, because it's closed.
[ambrus]: 1nickt: that's the theory. the theory is also that it should have dried by Sunday morning, but it didn't. so I dunno.
