  • I think if we could have a standard deck of cards introducing perl as something like the

    Practical Easy Real world Language
    for presenting to students in universities/colleges, this might go towards increasing mindshare. I'm thinking of an emphasis on the positive and interesting things like Perl::Critic, Moose, Test::More and co, Catalyst, Rose::*, DBIx::Class, Catalyst and Jifty.

    Perhaps a 15 minute deck and a 60 minute deck that emphasise the positive bits of perl. Having had a look at the competition in a little bit of detail yesterday, I think that with some marketing like this, perl could attract students because it's got an awful lot going for it once you get past the "just for sysadmins" and "what people used to use before PHP" attitudes.

    • *grumble*

      deck of cards should read deck of *slides*

      and Catalyst should only be mentioned once no matter how good it is ...
