Yeah, I can't help but feel that the Perl community works differently from most other IT communities. It's not uncommon - at least in my neck of the woods - for employers to advertise jobs requiring Microsoft, Redhat, Oracle, Java etc certification, but it seems to me that when it comes to Perl, the guys in charge of hiring would rather see your programming chops.

    Hmm. Have you noticed that Microsoft, Redhat, Oracle, and Java (Sun) are all companies that would benefit from tightening the supply pool through providing certification programs?

    Now compare that with Perl. What "company" would benefit from controlling certifications?

    See how that's different? I don't hear much about "Python" or "TCL" certifications either.
