  • I started by reading everything I could find on Perl. Then I started using Perl to add functionality to my web site. Later I started writing stand-alone apps so that I wouldn't have to buy some pricey piece of software. A short time after that I started using Perl at work to make my data entry job easier. (Stop laughing, the job market sucked.)

    It was at that time that I found Perl Monks. I would read the posts every day and absorb as much as I could. I started posting replies when I knew the answer (or thought that I did).

    I've had several jobs since then and each new job is a step up. I'm currently working as a (mostly) Perl developer with a snazzy title, "Senior Design Engineer".

    I wish you all the best. May it be a fun and enlightening journey!

      I am hoping it will be and I hope to learn enough to give back to the community in some way.
