I've just had a very strange meeting.
A company in London were looking for a Perl trainer so I went along to meet them this lunchtime.
They're looking for someone to teach a course (that the trainer will have to write) to a class of one person, for 15 hours a week (9am-noon, Mon-Fri), for 12 weeks, starting next Monday.
For this, you'll be paid £900 (that's in total, not per week).
Here's how they describe the course on their web site:
Perl is one of the most common programming languages used to interface with web sites. Our course will teach you the fundamental concepts of programming in Perl. You will be introduced to a text editor and an FTP program. By the end of the course you will know a series of Perl commands. These include sending email from a page, including separate files with Perl code, retrieving information about a web site visitor ("environmental variables"), and setting cookies.
So what do you think? Was I being ungrateful to turn them down? Am I being too greedy to expect more than £5 an hour?
