Recruiting a Perl developer is like finding a needle in a haystack. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to recruit a developer, rather than a Perl developer and let them learn Perl on the job?

At Geekuni, I’ve been working with several companies taking on this challenge and in this talk I’ll share opportunities and pitfalls I’ve observed, and techniques that make the workplace a fertile ground for growing Perl developers.
