I'm now employed by a company that is mostly (90%) a perl shop. It's great -- and I'm surrounded by incredible Perl Ninjas.
Oooh. You are very fortunate. I suggest you use these ninjas to your greatest advantage (that is, learn as much as you can from them) while you can. Let me give you n more words of advice though: After briefly discussing some topic with one of them, do not remain in their cubicle continuing to ask questions. Bow to your sensei, get back to your dojo, and write some code.
Only after putting in some of your own effort should you then go back for more help -- if necessary. Helping folks who need it is fun and rewarding, but that fun evaporates very quickly if you sense that the person you're assisting isn't acting on what you've given them.
