Honestly, it seemed to be written by an amateur from the first paragraph.

I like the positivity in theory but it’s starting to look like denialism.

Even the few Perl jobs out there are requiring you use “modern perl”, read:
“load needless module overhead to make your OO code look like it isn’t
Perl”, and treating you like an amateur if you didn’t climb onto the Moose
“perl cosplaying as java” bandwagon.

Otherwise, we’re pretty much stuck searching for a Rosetta Stone to figure
out how to do super advanced shit we’ve been doing for decades, but in
python instead because it has a marketing department.

Oh well. Such is life, and since I don’t see being able to “use
Tensorflow;” in the foreseeable future I guess I need to put on my big boy
pants and make myself learn the weird, nonsense language of snakes instead.
