[Israel.pm] Is there a lack of (good) Perl programmers?

or, if those companies want to survive, they should hire good 
programmers, and let them learn perl. that's what they do anyway, with 
programmers who come from a different technological background.

in many companies, the language is only one of several barriers, and 
sometimes not the main barrier - the technology to be developed is much 
more complicated then mastering a given programming language.

i just wish people would stop putting such a strong emphasize on knowing 
specific programming languages.
