I slacked off yesterday, and forgot to write up a blog post about this, but December 18 marked the 20th birthday of the [Perl](http://perl.org/) programming language! Woohoo!
I’ve personally been using Perl for about ten years, and for the past seven years I’ve been using it in my job at [Christianbook.com](http://www.christianbook.com/). I love coding in Perl, and I’ve learned how to make it do some really crazy things over the years! I guess you could say that Perl helps me “put bread on the table,” so I owe [Larry Wall](http://www.wall.org/~larry/) some thanks for creating such a great language and guiding it through all of these years of development.
Here’s to 20 more great years!
