My First Post.
Hi, I am a Storage Administrator. I was on a lookout for a scripting language that would help me automate some of the work that I do. Started learning Perl, but it was ( and still is) a sort of intermittent process. Work load has a tendency to mount when you least expect and I end up not learning/writing Perl for days together.
Signed up here to write about Perl. I am still in the learning phase, yet, I'll post whatever small scripts I write.
It saddens me when, without any valid research, some people, even a few of my colleagues bemoan the state of Perl. They think that Perl is stagnant, that its not "alive and growing" any more..In my own small ways, I am trying to change that perception. If I can get a few of my colleagues and friends to change their opinion, it would be fine by me :)
My main intention of posting my scripts on PerlMonks and here is that some fellow storage admin comes here while browsing for some script to automate the same tasks that I have already automated, finds my scripts useful and uses them.
That's all for now.
P.S. -> Well, I was trying to write this blog on IE 9, but for some reason this content page would not let me type in. So I tried Chrome and it works fine :)
