  • I'm in a rural part of the UK and I managed to organise a two perl monger meetings in the space of a coupel of months with a pretty good turn out of about a dozen at each - many of those at both were people new to perl.

    It doesn't have the hubris of the dot-com boom or the hype of Rails, but I'm pretty feeling pretty secure in my preferred choice of language. In fact there are a lot of people crying out for perl developers in the UK. I'm looking for a new perl contractor to work with my main client because my mate was headhunted after just a few months on the project.

    I think a lot of the froth that you get around new and exciting stuff has died down because basicly many perl developers are just using perl to get their jobs done, and have been too busy working on real business solutions to play around with 'cool stuff'.

    Obviously there is a lot of cool new stuff about, but I think it's the tip of a quietly successful iceberg that's mostly unseen and unappreciated but holding the internet and much financial and ecommerce together.

    • I hasten to add that we have a LUG and a Perl Mongers in devon and cornwall but I have no idea where the nearest Microsoft/Oracle/Java/Python/PHP user group is - probably London.

      I would guess we have at least another perl monger group between me and the nearest user group other than Linux.
