Rick Talks has been going global over the last few weeks, as myself and my colleague, Aleks, attended NLPW15: The Dutch Perl Workshop in Utrecht.
The Perl workshop consisted of a day of presentations for users of Perl, welcoming Perl Mongers from all over Europe, providing a great opportunity for all involved to discuss Perl, it’s latest additions and day-to-day issues, as well as furthering their respective Perl careers.
In respect of this, I was proud to be asked to give a Rick Talks presentation on standing out as a Perl Developer, aiding the many developers in attendance to further or gain entry into their perfect Perl career. In particular, the talk focussed on interviewing for a successful Perl Career and the best strategies to stand out as a Perl Developer candidate. Read the slides below!
This was followed by a lively Q&A, as always, from the Perl Community in attendance, where I was happy to provide further advice and answer any questions surrounding securing a Perl Career in the current market.
It’s always a great opportunity and much fun to attend these events and engage with the Perl community. Aside from my talk, we particularly enjoyed conducting a prize draw for €200, as well as building kites and experiencing the very unique trampoline outside!
If you get a chance, do come to one of the upcoming events I will be attending where you are able to network with like-minded Perl Developers and get some advice from myself on your Perl Career!
