in reply to poll ideas quest 2012


I would like to learn more about the employment status of Perl developers, for several reasons: first, I teach Perl programming and I would like to tell my students what they should expect from learning the language. Second, beside teaching, I also work as a consultant and I do Perl development full time. I always preach for Perl and defend the values of the language among my coworkers. Third, I once was told by a headhunter that I should focus on PHP instead of Perl because that would be better for my career (I refused her PHP job and got a better Perl job instead).


What kind of Perl job do you have / are you looking for?


Thank you!

    I'd love to see the answers of this pool, maybe I could find the answer of the question : What is job? Is it doing the same thing over and over again no matter the language?

      It's like I've always said... if you work for a business, you should really try to look busy!

      But if you are stuck doing the same thing over and over again, you should really try to automate your work! Then you will have more time to look busy.

      There are no stupid questions, but there are a lot of inquisitive idiots.
