Is Perl Dead

Is a Perl Dead? – The view of a Perl Recruiter The question I’m always asked as a Perl recruiter is whether Perl is dying? It's an easy one to answer, and the short response is no.

Although a number of languages, such as Ruby and Python, may be perceived as “cooler”, the Perl recruitment market continues to be extremely buoyant. As a Perl recruiter, this translates into plenty of jobs landing on my desk every week.

Eligo Recruitment Specialists Football

At Eligo we are a social bunch who enjoy getting together for a few beers but we are also very proud of our very own football teams. Yes, we have an Eligo A team and an Eligo B Team!! Each year we join the Jobsite team at their annual 5 a side tournament.
