Perl's alive and kicking in the job market

| No Comments

renodino writes in his journal that he's sick of hearing FUD about how Perl is dead. So, he built a quick graph of job ads on

His graph shows Perl jobs as the blue bar, with the dark blue bar next to it being those jobs which specify Perl as well as any other dynamic language. It's pretty obvious that if you're looking for a job programming in a dynamic language, Perl is the way to go.

renodino writes that he's intending to update the graph regularly, so it will be interesting to see whether Perl can maintain its huge lead over time.
