( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I'm in the process of changing jobs. I'm currently working at a huge company (~60.000 employees) and here I'm working in Python. I don't think Python is a bad language, but some things it feels a bit weird and I actually prefer Perl. So now I'm joining a startup (not that small, about 80 people) and there I'll be working in Perl. In this startup Perl is used for test automation, where I think it's a really strong language.

So this is just a personal anecdote that there are still startups out there that start using Perl. And from my previous experience (moving from a Perl background to a Python job) I really wouldn't be afraid of sticking with Perl. The switch to another language isn't that hard (if you have to do it at some point because your new job requires it) and all companies I interviewed with never saw this as a problem.

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.
