  • If you're on the hiring side and you want to know more about people, you might try breaking it up into multiple questions. I would ask these:

    • How would you rate your coding skill in general?
    • How would you rate your depth of knowledge about Perl?
    • How would you rate your involvement with the Perl community?

    Still a bit dodgy maybe, especially the first one. You really have to know what you're looking for. If you want a person who hash out requirements and talk to non-techies, you'll probably ask different things than if you want someone to make low-level optimizations to some tricky code.

    Questions like this are really meant to be the jumping off point for a larger discussion, so a person who just says "8" is missing the opportunity.
