( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have recently taken an interest in reading postings for Perl contract jobs. I often see something similar to the following:

Wide demonstrable experience with Object Oriented programming

What does this mean?

  1. Designing and coding objects
  2. Using existing OO code(CPAN)
  3. Both
  4. None of the above

As someone who has done a bit of both 1 and 2, I am just curious at to what professionals and/or hiring managers are expecting when they ask for experience in OO(Perl or otherwise).

(I do not generally work as a developer, though I do some development on occasion. Thus my nativeness...)

Thanks for any feedback. Update: I would like to thank each of those who answered for taking the time to do so. The input is very helpful to me at this point in time. I got a darn good (though somewhat rueful) laugh out of the post by ww! So many job posting are written in such a way that one would have to sit at the right hand of God just to qualify to read the posting, not to mention apply for the job.

Thanks again! ++ to all.

  • The Spice must flow...
  • ..by my will, and by will alone.. I set my mind in motion

In reply to OOP: What is implied...? by wjw

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
