Success Stories?

[ #25524 ]

The perl.com success stories are sort of old now. I'm looking for any articles/whitepapers/etc... out there which pertain to "We used to use X, switched to Perl and now life is good" or "We used Perl, switched to X and now life is bad". Not just stories on how Perl is great for whatever was done, but why Perl ended up being the best choice.

Anyone have any pointers to newsgroup articles, magazine articles, etc...? Bonus points if it is from a company, not just an individual. Extra Bonus points for anything written by a manager-type.

  • I actually have this as an item on my to-do list, but I'm not sure when I'll get to it. Believe it or not, my boss found the success stories on the O'Reilly site and sent me an email about writing one up.

    Our story isn't quite what you were looking for, but at least it will be fresh...

    • Cool! I find that when you show someone success stories from '99, they don't really care as much. It would be great to have some new ones, and especially any saying why Perl was better to use than X.

      You should push this up in your queue :-)
