Perl, Outsourcing and China

| 3. Contribute! We need more members of the Chinese Perl community to join in 
| open source projects and make contributions. Something that desperately needs 
| contributers is documentation. We need the standard set of Perl documentation 
| in Chinese. What can companies do? If your company is taking on LAMP projects 
| but you lack the skilled resources for the job, obviously you need to put 
| together a serious training program. Ideally you would have these LAMP 
| trainees work on one of the many open-source projects out there first and let 
| them build up their LAMP skill-set, then once they are suitably trained, let 
| them loose on your customer's code. Don't just rush through the training! You 
| don't want to make a bad impression on your customer by having people with 
| little or no Perl skills hacking on their code. One big advantage you get 
| with letting your LAMP trainees work on open-source projects is that they get 
| code-reviewed by experienced Perl engineers. Also, your company gets some 
| street-credit for making contributions to open-source projects and you are 
| more likely to attract better talent in the future.

Office are indicative of profit.
