in reply to Next Language to Learn

Wow! You know everything about Perl? Moose? Catalyst? XS?

Then again, I guess you mean "What is a the next language to learn after Perl 5", to which the obvious answer is "Perl 6".

Here is what over 40 years of programming has taught me:
1. You will never know everything
2. Be selective - choose your path
3. Products have the lifespan of a mayfly
4. Stuff you learn today will appear to be obsolete tomorrow
5. Stuff you learn today will be useful the day after tomorrow
6. Don't believe bozos who try to give you advice based on their own failed careers.

choroba had a Christams party at work yesterday. Slow morning today...
[Corion]: I guess I should not read some discussions on HackerNews - the crowd there is weirdly different - "you have to stay current in tech" (by following all the latest JS trends) is a meme there, but it doesn't really match my experience
[Corion]: At least in my area, experience can beat most new tech anyway because most new tech is just a rehash of things abandoned in the 70s and we still have a lot of that ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Ah, that will be next Friday for $work ;) Drinking enough water is key ;))
[Corion]: But then, maybe that's just my experience with things, and maybe Hacker News is just people much younger who haven't seen more than one tech cycle...
[choroba]: s/water/bear/ and s/enough/too much/
[choroba]: beer
[choroba]: oh ok
[marto]: I crashed the ScotLUG Christmas night, having never actually been to ScotLUG
[choroba]: Corion yeah, I probably already told you about how Bjarne Stroustrup was asked whether he still watched the new tech trends and what really impressed him
