in reply to Books to master Perl, LAMP and web development

Why limit it to Perl? Check out some of the hot new frameworks like Django (Python based) or even Rails.

PHP is the language of choice for Web development these days and you will have a much better chance of finding a job knowing these than if you only have Perl under your belt.

I love Perl, and not predicting it's demise, but it is no longer the darling of the Web. Heresy here at the Monastery? Maybe, but it's the truth in Web land where I leave daily.

    Heresy indeed! Let us not forget that all truth is subjective, and 95% of all people are idiots, web developers included. Let them have their pee eich pee and their piethawn. It will not save them come the Day of Wreckoning :^)

    That's, to me, a sign not to work with a project. PHP's a decent templating language, but I wouldn't build anything serious in it.

      Agreed. I *never* use PHP and never will, but facts is facts. I also loathe the idea of ASP(X), but it's reality.
