in reply to Back to Perl

I have recently changed jobs, in my old job - I used PERL because I wanted to. In my new job I use PERL because I have too. I haven't had to re-learn perl per say, but rather how to code perl for a community rather than just for myself ie easier to read, and more efficient. Its been a trying process, but a worth while endeavor. Iv'e been using PERL for a number of years and have learned to better utilize the tools PERL has to offer, and some features that I never even knew existed.

    I'm about to go thru a similar job-change. I've done a fair amount of perl coding in my current job, but the new one will be primarily writing perl application code. I'm expecting my new co-workers to point out lots of bad habits I've developed.

    ChilliHead - if I were you I'd try to find a way to put your efforts in re-learnig perl during your 'downtime' on your resume. It'll be a good sign to prospective employers that you're actually into programming, not just in it for the $$.

      I've always avoided putting things I've learned at home on my resume.

      Here in the the UK employers aren't interested unless you've got at least 2 years commercial experience in the last 2 years. When they find you've only used x technology at home, their eyes just glaze over.

      Maybe employers where you are understand that the technologies we use in our own time are the ones we know the best.
