I've been a professional programmer for 33 years. I work in Perl and a big pile of legacy PHP.
My book Land the Tech Job You Love is available from Pragmatic Bookshelf.
I created and maintain the programmer's grep-like search tool ack
My blog about tech life, including job hunting, is blog.petdance.com.
