all you need to know about Perl 6

The annual London Perl Workshop took place on Saturday, gracing us with the theme of a Perl Christmas. The event was dedicated to a special arrival underneath the Christmas tree this year: the arrival of Perl 6! With that in mind, we asked experienced Perl Programmer and regular contributor at events such as YAPC, LPW, the Dutch Perl Workshop, and more, Steve Mynott, some questions on the introduction of Perl 6 and the key points you need to know about its release. How is Perl 6 different from Perl 5? Perl 6 is a different computer language to Perl 5 but a member of the same Perl family of languages sharing the same original author Larry Wall.  They are similar in many ways; both are...

security engineer value

You might have noticed: Security Engineers are in demand. You may have fielded calls from multiple recruiters or you may see other companies paying much more for a role you’re doing for less at yours; ultimately the market is currently driven by engineers like you. Recently I wrote an article for the companies trying to attract the best security engineers in this market, for the companies that believe that those security engineers should be queuing at the door to work at a company such as theirs. I asked them to consider the same as I’m going to ask you now: Do you know your own value as a Security Engineer? Your value as a quality security engineer should not be underestimated,...

employer brand attracting developers company branding

You’re a great company, really, you are. You should be attracting some excellent talent; sure, there’s a shortage of developers, particularly Perl, Ruby, Java etc., but that’s all the more reason why the talent that there is should be working for you. So you’re not quite Google, or Facebook, or [insert one of any other well-known tech brand's here], maybe you are: it’s still possible. Read any advice on attracting talent and, you’ll be told the first step is to look at your employer brand, and it is, as long as you understand that this is more than your logo, a foosball table in the office, or even free fruit on Fridays. Looking at your employer brand requires you to step...

Developer Recruitment

Download our Developer CV Template here! As specialists in open source development recruitment we often get asked by our candidates, “How can I stand out to get the developer job I want”?
