Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.
My thought: how about charging us for competency instead? I'd be willing to pay extra for that.
That reminds me of one company I worked at where our new IT director went and asked our HR head what FTP was. A bit more research into his resume quickly followed. He was then fired when we found out he didn't have the degree he claimed. Then he sent an email asking for his job back :)
That was the same company which hired a DBA who didn't know what normalization was. I had to explain to him why ingredient1 .. ingredient8 in a recipes table was a bad idea.
Don't I wish. Fortunately, it's not a project I'm on.
