  • Why?

    No, don't bother. It was rhetorical. Dismissive, even.

    • Why have Perl Certification?

      General Purpose

      • Provide optional credentials that certify a level of proficiency
      • ideally, ultimately, several hierarchical levels, including:
        • Basic, OO, CGI, DBI, Networking, etc.

      Who Benefits?

      • Hiring managers who want help in screening applicants
      • JAPHs without college degrees or strong reputations (like someone who learns Perl from the local *.pm and Camel), who need help in verifying their knowledge
      • The Whole Perl Community
        • gives us a more professional appearance,

      • Why have Perl Certification?

        I interpreted the question as "Why setup a whole Wiki for this one topic?"

        At least, that's the question i would have asked ... it seems like this could easily be covered by a single "node" on ny of a number of alrger discussion sites -- but hey, who am i to suggest that someone who has an interested in something shouldn't set up a site dedicated to that topic.

        • The topic is B big enough to populate a Wiki of its own, and equally certain to be too discursive and ungainly to be easily followed in a threaded medium (as has been previously demonstrated). And it's a whole lot easier to explore discussions preserved in the Wiki format, IMHO.
