Perl Survey - Initial data analysis and presentation
Thanks to Stuttgart.pm I presented the initial results from the Perl Survey at German Perl Workshop last week. Unfortunately due to a combination of jet-lag (after a 36 hour journey) and stupidity, I didn't record the talk.
There appears to be some very good news in that people use and are enthusiastic about new versions of perl, and the cutting edge perl modules like Moose, Catalyst, DBIx::Class and so on.
Most of the analysis and graphs were done with R, a little Perl, and unfortunately for the CPAN and programming languages questions I had to result to a mix of Perl and manual munging with a spreadsheet.
The survey has generated a very large amount of information, and now that I've got an initial cut of the data analysis, I'll be writing a formal report, and investigating any interesting patterns I find on the way.
