20 Years Of Perl

I slacked off yesterday, and forgot to write up a blog post about this, but December 18 marked the 20th birthday of the Perl 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. 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 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!
