My take is that you have to Specialize in programming. If you understand technology and programming then learning perl or any other programming language is just learning the different implementations of the same things. Then learning the particular quirks. I've seen some who are experts in one or two things and that's well and good. However, I've also known the people who really "know" programming and they can do multiple languages at "expert" level. So I say, be an expert programmer and specialize in languages. Me personally, I'm an Oracle DBA, webmaster, 3d artist, perl programmer, unix admin, MCSE, etc etc etc. If you build your computing foundation from the ground up, learning new technologies is easy. It's just different implementations of existing technologies and every once in a while you get a brand new technology, but it's still going to be based on your preexisting knowledge. This disjointed poorly formed response brought to you by me.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
