My take is that you have to Specialize in programming. If you understand technology and programming then learning perl or any other programming language is just learning the different implementations of the same things. Then learning the particular quirks. I've seen some who are experts in one or two things and that's well and good. However, I've also known the people who really "know" programming and they can do multiple languages at "expert" level. So I say, be an expert programmer and specialize in languages. Me personally, I'm an Oracle DBA, webmaster, 3d artist, perl programmer, unix admin, MCSE, etc etc etc. If you build your computing foundation from the ground up, learning new technologies is easy. It's just different implementations of existing technologies and every once in a while you get a brand new technology, but it's still going to be based on your preexisting knowledge. This disjointed poorly formed response brought to you by me.
