  • So you figure it's necessary to destroy perl in order to save it?

    In any case, I suspect that the perception that the quality of available perl applicants is dropping has more to do with companies getting very paranoid about hiring perl programmers: they're adding more layers of interviews, and more detailed quizzing about different things. Myself, I find this personally frustrating because (a) I do terribly in oral exams and (b) the ability to do well in these quizzes has little to do with working as a programmer, which is always an open book test. If it were just me, I might figure this is just sour grapes on my part, but I know programmers I think are better than I am who are having a harder time getting through the interview gauntlet.
