in thread Perl Certification revisited

I am delighted to see that after a bit more than a year your opinions have not influenced how employers determine if they want to hire me or not. I can only be suspicious at someone like you, especially when i see you giving advice like so:

    Most programming guides for Perl will teach you how to write scripts for Linux. You then later have to update your code to work for Win32 from another guide. It's all a lot easier if you code your script for Linux and Win32 in the first place.

What a total crock of crap. No. No i do not need to later update my code to work for Win32 because i don't write code for Microsoft. I think we see your true nature now -- no wonder you want Perl to adopt certifications, no wonder you want people to have to pay for them. That is exactly what Microsoft wants too. Why don't you guys just stick to .NET and leave Unix programming to the professionals? We don't need you, your certifications, or your bad advice.

Thanks, but no thanks.

    Jeffa - I do not agree with your possition regarding Microsoft! I much do not like Microsoft, but to be employed you should do what employer need to be done. If anything need to be done in Windows - you need to be able to do it - if you are PERL developer - with PERL! Certificate does not needed to suck monney from developers! It is needed to provide to potencial employer proof of your PERL knowlage. That only a way to present it when you could not show it in your experience. Another way to be usefull: certification could be a way to be sure that you know it well enough! It shoud cost something because it need to be prepared, get some way to process an exam, have somebody time to review the test results and have it printed in any way.
      provide to potencial employer proof of your PERL knowlage

      or employers can run a spell check
