FULL DISCUSSION
 

Perl is a good language to create data centric backend processes.
The reputation of the language is worse than it really should be.

I used a lot of programming languages in my developer life, but Perl was not the worst of them.

 

Perl was my first web programming language followed by PHP.

Perl was really fast but it’s very easy to write that code.

 

Perl is a great language, but almost all projects are at least 10 years old. You always end up with spaghetti code in an 10 year old codebase.
