in reply to Report: Migrating from perl to Java

Thanks for your comments and insights. Just to clarify:

  • I too don't think this means Perl is dying. Also this wasn't a PR news, but from a reporter of the magazine itself (neither eBay nor wrote it).
  • My first thought was also, that refactoring perl for two years would bring probably similar results BUT and this is what made me think: only if you get the right people.

And that is what my last paragraph was about. Most of the time, you don't get the right people for large-scale Perl projects.

Nevertheless - one big supporter of the annual German Perl Workshops is gone. Let's see if this gap can be filled in the future.

talexb thinks the term 'cookie monster' is unnecessarily drogatory ;) and takes a cookie as well. Mmmm. Delicious cookies.
