I started learning Perl when I was 26. Perl was my first programming language. I like Perl a lot.

My first journal entry

[ #873 ]
It has been almost 11 months since I first opened the camel book. The following are a few things I like about Perl right now.

Perl...

  • ...quickly secured me a job when my former employer (an Internet startup) went under.
  • ...has given me the tools to write CGI and sysadmin scripts that (hopefully) make people's lives (my own included) just a bit easier.
  • ...showed me that someone like Larry Wall exists, giving me that rare opportunity to have a man I can look at and say, "I want to be like him."
  • ...introduced me to programming and, at least for now, programming is what I love to do.
