So, I've accepted a job as Senior Software Developer, programming in Perl at W3Data. (here and here) I start on December 6th so they have time to get things set up and finish taking over the rest of the floor they are on. I was told explicitly that I would be sent to Perl conferences and such and they would like to encourage me to write more papers for conferences. From what I've heard and seen, it looks like a decent place to work. Not only that but it's downtown as well, so the commute will be easy.
