> If you're not hacking on the tool in question, the language it's written in is irrelevant. Sure, sandbox the PHP app for security purposes, but if it fills your needs otherwise, go with it. Unless you're just setting things up as a hobby, getting to B from A is more important--and the users of your apps couldn't care less about what language they're written in.

I don't know puppet - but with Chef, you'll likely end up developing
your own recipes and templates, which means you'll be writing some
ruby.  Not necessarily complex ruby, but ruby nonetheless.

Do you know of any devops tools or frameworks in Perl?
