Well in more than six months i have managed to release three applications,
one for the local dev teams, one for Honk Kong users and a web application
for Singapore users. Not too bad, hey :) I also did a short talk on Perl
programming(Mostly Damian Conway's Perl Best Practices verbatim )
These applications are neither very large/ nor overtly complex though. I
think my enthusiasm for Perl is because of the fact i could deliver things
Well i can say one thing, Perl is definitely not dead. We have lots of
legacy code in Perl. However there seems to be some reluctance to accept it
as the mainstream development platform.
As far as Company Information is considered, i see that Bank of America(Our
parent company now) is already listed on http://jobs.perl.org/ as companies
using Perl. I would be more than happy to broadcast the fact that we use
Perl, let me just run it past the communications team at work.
