I just added a concluding slide to my updated Perl Myths talk. Having comprehensively debunked some myths with hard facts about perl and its ecosystem, I wanted to end with a slide that summarized some truths.
I liked the slide text so much I wanted to share it with you:
has a massive library of reusable code
has a culture of best practice and testing
has a happy welcoming growing community
has a great future in Perl 5 and Perl 6
is a great language for getting your job done
for the last 20 years, and the next 20!
It would make more sense after seeing the talk, but I think it stands well on its own as a summary of Perl.
