From the interviewing I have done, there is a lack of talent with a strong skillset (especially in OOPerl), who are knowledgable about enterprise application design, and who are capable of working with others in a team programming environment.

I wonder if there has recently been an uptick in companies locally here in SD who need Perl developers? It used to be there were few.
