in reply to Why Perl is a Valid Choice

A few small comments:

* fastcgi is not purely used for perl. Eg. it is one of the serving methods of choice for Ruby on Rails
* my experience is that jobs.perl.org is in fact a poor indicator of the availability of perl jobs. On any given day, cwjobs.co.uk lists way more perl jobs (with way higher salaries) than jobs.perl.org in banking, telco's etc.

Many of your points are about the benefit of open source agile environments. I am happy for anyone choosing Ruby or Python or Perl. They are relatively equally valid choices. I think the one choice that is not valid is Java.

Just my opinions!

    I think the one choice that is not valid is Java.

    Unless:

    • You have several million existing lines of Java code
    • You have a good team of developers who write Java well, meet their deadlines, etc.
    • You're targeting a platform that only supports Java
    • etc.

    Thanks for the input. I'll add that site to the list. I'm still not clear how to present the general perl jobs picture. I wanted to keep it simple, without listing every internet job bank, but still accurately make the point.

    If I was going to list a subset of jobs sites, can the monks suggest maybe a top 5 that they might be familiar with?

    Also, it would be nice to post a link that includes the search. For example, it appears I could post your link above like so: http://cwjobs.co.uk/JobSearch/Results.aspx?Keywords=perl
