Good luck Sebastien! So you started studying Perl, but have found it not commonly used and are jumping ship? I've heard Python is a good route to go. I am still trying to place out my feelers and figure out where abouts I want to go. Hopefully it'll come to light soon?

I used Perl professionally recently and I thought it was doing the job. Unfortunately, the position came to an end after four years and what was an expertise became a red flag for recruiters, like “oh no a perlist”. I find it hilarious and tragic at the same time. Anyway, a good opportunity to learn something else.

I am not sure if I am supposed to like this, because it stinks. At least you're willing to change with the tides. It's difficult though, I think from what I've seen across the board developers are expected to be quite a bit. Something akin to a trendy cyborg. I want to see healthier practices introduced to the field =)
