Well, recruiters don’t look at PerlMonks, but most Perl programmers do with some frequency.   Being a participant may emphasize that you do (or do not) know what you’re talking about, but really it is your work that speaks for you or against you most clearly.   No matter what else you do in a workplace, don’t piss anyone else off.   You need a body of work that you can demonstrate, and you need good co-worker references.   And none of that is ever going to do your selling for you.

Marketability is strictly determined by your skills of self-promotion; that is to say, marketing.   I have a friend who is an excellent sysadmin, but, bless him, he couldn’t promote himself out of a paper bag.   Talks about amazing stuff that he routinely does, and it really is amazing stuff ... but put him into an interview and you can almost hear the blam!! as the bullet hits the foot.   Again.   So, participation in a forum is definitely something that you can use in self-marketing efforts, but your success is largely going to depend on your abilities of self-marketing in general.   It’s a skill that must be learned.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;

    [Corion]: Meh. SQL window functions would even make pagination easy/trivial (but not performant), as rank() over (partition by user order by timestamp) / 10 as page would give me a page number for each item, with 10 items per page.
    [Corion]: Of course, the query performance for "all items on page 10" is likely worse than rank() between 100 and 109 , but if that means I can write 15 lines of SQL instead of needing to think about how to partition things and how to encode the page size...
    [Corion]: ... that would be nice. But alas, I'm currently tied to SQLite as minimum implementation, and it doesn't implement window functions :-(
