in thread What is your opinion in Perl Certified Professional?

People who have certificates tend to be talentless hacks who can solve every problem except a novel one.

Or they are working, or want to work for, industries and organisations that take certification seriously - for good or bad reasons. It's just a big a mistake to discard somebody because they have certification as it is to discard somebody because they don't.

    Fair enough... I wish to amend my statement to "people who make a big deal out of certificates tend to be talentless hacks who can solve every problem except a novel one."
