in reply to What are the business needs from Perl

Dear anonymous letter writer,

Biz happens all over the place, so you better learn both Perl and algorithms really well. Compute centres, bioinformatics, banking, insurance and web hosting might not really overlap, but together should cover pretty much all of computer science, all of the major platforms and just about all kinds of uses, including the absurd and the patently impossible.

Now if you'd restrict yourself to a more specific professional field, maybe you can strike out some areas and delay learning some of the more obscure skills and fields.

Sincerely,
your most-loved journal's favorite columnist
