Perl 5 is often seen as a dated, if not dead language, consigned to being hacked together by a sysad to keep some legacy platform from the 90s ticking over.
Sadly that part is true, but there is still life in the old dog yet, helped by the recent release of version 8 of the Mojolicious framework.
If you've not played with Perl but you have an interest, Mojolicious is a good entry point and I'd recommend it for any new projects. It's built in support for web-sockets makes it very suitable for modern back-end platforms.
