Market for Perl Programmers

1 New Member
Hi there,

Is there still a market for Perl programmers? I am a relatively recent graduate of Computer Science. I only have two years under my belt. My longest contract involved a lot of programming in Perl. I spent a year working for a consulting company, working in a LAMP environment. I spent my time there working on a number of web apps using Perl/CGI scripts, and did prototyping of web apps and testing. I would say I'm a junior-to-intermediate Perl programmer. I want to enhance my employability. Should I leave Perl alone and concentrate more on Python and PHP.

Thanks,
Rodriguez

Can I feel even better about using perl vs. python, as apparently python's dependence of formatting, indentation, etc. vs. perl's "(){};" etc. makes writing python programs perhaps very device dependent. Whereas perl can be written on a tiny tiny screen, and can withstand all kinds of users with various disabilities, etc.? Also perl is easier...
