+ - Switching from Perl to C++

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "I am a junior web application developer working on back office tools for an e-commerce business. I have a few years experience on the Linux/MySQL/Apache/Perl stack. I see myself as relatively well paid. However I notice that salaries at the top end of my field are approximately 60-50% of those offered to C++ developers. This is enough to make me consider switching and I would rather do this earlier than later to reduce any pay cut I may have to accept. Of course the problem is that its almost impossible to find jobs in C++ that do not require experience. And to make matters worse its normally experience of closed source, non-free products, Sybase, SQL Server, Visual Studio, etc. So I turn to slashdot for advice on how to improve my chances of getting my foot in the door."

Have you ever noticed that the people who are always trying to tell you `there's a time for work and a time for play' never find the time for play?
