Learned and wise Monks...
Here in the UK there is currently a government scheme to get young people into work. The Kickstart Scheme pays the young person minimum wage for 25 hours per week for 6 months. We have applied to take on two young people under the scheme. Most applicants have played with React at most but I am interviewing a graduate tomorrow. On his CV he has C, Python and R which has been done as part of his Physics degree plus Python and Shell Scripts on a Raspberry Pi as a hobby.
I know absolutely nothing about R.
From my very limited knowledge of Python, I believe it is broadly in the same group of languages as Perl. Therefore, the skills this applicant already has in Python should be relatively easily transferrable to Perl
- is that a fair assessment???
Any suggestions for me bearing in mind the applicant has had no real workplace experience?
