What is the average salary for Perl programmers in 2020?

Original article published  my new blog  blog.assad.fr
If I have no definitive answer on this, the Business Insider has some insights: HackerRank polled 116000 developers about their salaries and got interesting results: Perl is associated with an average global salary of $84,025.50 (54.2% higher than the global average salary)Scala is associated with an average global salary of $77,159.60Go is associated with an average global salary of $72,691.30Python is associated with an average global salary of $56,670.90JavaScript is associated with an average global salary of $55,690 Without more information about the polled panel it's hard to state this results as “Truth” but they seems to confirm personal beliefs: The salary is more linked to the scarsity of resources than to the trendyness of the associated technology.Perl resources are less and less available. You know what ? It's good to be a Perl programmer :-)

So, there's no chance I'll drop Perl any time soon. That doesn't mean I'll stop exploring new languages (like Kotlin) or even loving other ones (like Golang). But you know, when I love it's forever… WHAT PERL IN 2020? For me it will be maintaining and improving an impressive code base used by thousands of people in a great University. Improving Net::Whois::RIPE, as some people are still using it. (by the way, a new release is out!) Probably more testing (setting up a CPAN smoker?) and always some more tools… AND THEN? It will probably be like that for a long time… I hear…
