During the YAPC::EU 2009 conference in Lisbon, I heard many times that Perl is NOT dead. Interesting, I never considered Perl to be dead. It is funy thing about human brain, it skips the word NOT. So the message I got is: perl is dead. If so many people try to convince me that “perl is NOT dead”, there has to be a good reason that other people think it IS dead. What can this reason be? Old beliefs about perl? Rise of new languages like python, ruby, groovy?
And, more important for myself – what should I do?
There are several things:
- spread the word that perl is great and not dead, by for example joining ironman blogging chalenge
- wait, and do nothing – if perl is good then it may defend itself without my help
- learn a new language, to be safe. Or brush up old good java or C-something.
What do YOU think about it?
