I have an unusual opportunity at work. My position involves a lot of process design and security work, but developing Perl applications is a big part of that job. My group's manager was recently offered a promotion that moves him out of my direct "chain of command".
I've been offered the opportunity to interview candidates for the position. Having been a manager before, I know how to interview someone whom I will be managing -- however, this is the first time I've had a chance to interview someone to be my manager.
Anyone have ideas on what to ask during the interview to increase the chances of a clueful (and Perl-friendly) boss?
