Top Perl Developers of June 2017

full-stack developer ● IT architecture & strategy ● DevOps ● smokejumper

Solid programmer. Great trouble-shooter, debugger, and "OMG! Everything is on fire! HALP!!" first responder. Especially good at complex integration and automation. Having "jumped the fence" into new programming languages and communities multiple times, strong mentor for just getting into new toolsets and approaches, or moving into cloud/DevOps deployments. Heavily using Python, JavaScript, nodejs, jQuery, d3.js, HTML, CSS, SVG, and LESS. Have worked extensively with PHP, WordPress, Perl, Java, SQL, MySQL, PostreSQL, XML, ODF, NoSQL, and a bunch of other stuff. Interested in, but have not relied on Ruby, Go, Julia, Rust, D, and Nim in production code. I can get in the wayback machine and do C, bash, awk, Ada, Pascal, Modula-2, Icon, LISP, Prolog, and Smalltalk, depending how far back you want to go. We'll pretend that BASIC thing never happened, s'ok? I've programmed inside the Unix kernel, distributed multi-threaded middleware, GUIs, application code, numerical/HPC, and more.

Polyglot developer with an obsession for modularity

I'm a self taught developer, and ever since my first job, given enough time at a workplace I've always become the guy who people go to when they're stuck, and I've enjoyed doing the same on various online communities. I've always found those interactions very rewarding, I find it much easier to apply myself in a focused way to helping other people solve their problems. I really believe in the "teach a man to fish" cliche. If you are a student or need help working on open source, I offer a 50% rate reduction. Note that I will not solve exercises/assignments for you, I am only willing to help you to solve them yourself. Finally, I suggest you check out this great write up by Adam Goldman, another mentor on this site, which has some great tips on how better utilize this service

Over 20 years of programming experience on a vast range of programming languages, platforms, and application areas.

There are no stupid questions. Coding most of my life. I love it when the UX has computers serving people, not the other way around.

My primary motivation is to be useful, usually by getting computers to do what they're good at: the tedious stuff. When we do this as much as is reasonable to implement, we leave us humans more time to enjoy life. I got my real start in software development by proving myself doing exactly that: I took a very boring and error-prone business process, and automated most of it away, leaving a UI that even the most computer-averse users found intuitive. The direct and side benefits of this system are still felt at that business, 13 years later. Freelancer and @toptal talent; open to remote jobs. Tweet me at

iOS / Full-stack / Database developer with lots of Linux and Security knowledge

I mainly build iOS apps using Swift or Objective-C, and backend server API's. I'm strong with databases, especially relational such as PostgreSQL and can build out schema's and design performant queries. I've also done Javascript work and recently built a complex front-end client using React/redux/chai/webpack with complete test coverage. I've worked in a GNU/POSIX (Linux/Unix/C) environment for over 20 years and I'm strong in administration, scripting, kernels, security, that sort of thing.

Full-stack developer with 18 years of experience, helping US startups full-time since 2005. Refactoring & code simplicity master.

Deep expertise in: frontend javascript (14 years), C, Java (12 years), PHP, perl, (8 years), Scala, Ruby, Rails (5 years), Objective-C & iOS frameworks (4 years). Big fan of TDD & best practices regardless of the technology stack. Writing code professionally since 1999, worked on more than 100 projects in the last 8 years. Featured in Washington Post in March 2013

Senior Software Engineer & DevOps

Versatile Software Engineer, with wide experience in several working fields, tools and technologies. I work or have worked with C, C++, Python, Perl and Java as main developments languages, and have worked in fields from industrial applications to medical imaging and storage, systems administration, financial and accounting, aerospace and even telecoms. My work covers the entire software life cycle, crossing boundaries with other departments, as DevOps, QC or Systems integration. I'm open mind related to learning new technologies or applying new processes, hunger for new challenges and flexible to adapt to new, unfaced situations. High-energy and motivated worker and team player, but able to work in an autonomous way with minimal direction. Use to handle fast paced environments with multiple tasks, re-scheduling constantly based on changing priorities. Highly experienced also in customer-oriented positions, gathering requirements and new priorities for projects, giving support and training to other team mates, co-workers and customer teams. Linux lover and Pythonista, interested in security, concurrency, networking, HTTP/Web, micro- services, high availability and on bringing open source and standard technologies to teams and projects. I'm updating myself to C++11 too.

Software-Developer and System-Engineer from good old Germany with long-term experience in the telecommunications industry (but open to all areas where scripting languages can be deployed)

Having more than 15 years experience in the area of system administration and software development for the telecommunications industry, I gathered a profound knowledge and comprehensive skills in application programming (e.g., for text processing and database access), UNIX/Linux system administration and project management.

An automation tester and developer by profession. Programmer and fiddler by hobby.

A problem solver and a quick learner with a passion for technology and hands on experience in multiple platforms, from the really old to the reasonably new.
