We often hear the comment, "No IT Manager ever got fired for picking Java."

I have a counterexample at my present client. The IT managing director was pushed out at the beginning of last year, because of a Java project going horrendously over budget and off the rails. It was not the programming language that was at fault, but the project management (or lack of it). Redundancies were made in May, and ironically a large proportion of these had attended the Java certification courses.

Within the organisation, Java programming has acquired a bitter taste in the mouth. They are favouring C++ which is the language that the 5 year old "legacy" systems were written in.

In terms of Perl use and acceptance, I'm working on it. I do have Perl code in use in the production environment, for application monitoring and suchlike. They've also got a big downer on Open Source.

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



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
