in reply to poll ideas quest 2012


I would like to learn more about the employment status of Perl developers, for several reasons: first, I teach Perl programming and I would like to tell my students what they should expect from learning the language. Second, beside teaching, I also work as a consultant and I do Perl development full time. I always preach for Perl and defend the values of the language among my coworkers. Third, I once was told by a headhunter that I should focus on PHP instead of Perl because that would be better for my career (I refused her PHP job and got a better Perl job instead).


What kind of Perl job do you have / are you looking for?


Thank you!
