in thread Is PerlMonks relevant for one's Perl marketability?

I suspect that Perl and employment pull in opposite directions: the goal of every Perl programmer is surely to avoid work?

    Ultimately, yes. But in my case, an intermediate goal is to avoid truly unpleasant work like PHP or web design by finding more enjoyable work involving Perl.

    Yes... and no.

    For example, i'm a lazy person. Or i tried to be, anyway.

    In the process of avoiding having to figure out how to get Apache, PHP and PostgreSQL working on Windows Server 2003 i ended up coding a full-up implementation of my own webserver and webframework. Plus my own mailserver. And a full websocket implementation. Oh, and did i mention my Radius server and minimal test implementation of a GTK3+WebKit based browser? Which is also one of the reasons why i get volunteered rather involuntarily to hold talks on a few local open source conferences each year.

    So, yes, most Perl developers are lazy. In a rather busy and productive way...

    Not complaining, just saying. It's been fun so far, after all.

    "I know what i'm doing! Look, what could possibly go wrong? All i have to pull this lever like so, and then press this button here like ArghhhhhaaAaAAAaaagraaaAAaa!!!"
