  • 4. We've had Perl 6 for years.
  • 5. Rakudo is the Parrot implementation.
  • 6. It releases monthly with Parrot.
  • 7. But it's not what people think of as being Perl 6.
  • 8. Not yet, at least.
  • 9. We are near the crest of the hill.
  • 10. Parrot's March release will be Parrot 1.0.
  • 11. Parrot releases every third Tuesday.
  • 12. Parrot 1.0 = March 17
  • 13. We still don't know what Rakudo will be.
  • 14. Assume nothing.
  • 15. What is in a standard Rakudo install?
  • 16. What will we port from Perl 5 to Perl 6?
  • 17. Who will create LWP, DBI, etc for Perl 6?
  • 18. What will the toolchain be like?
  • 19. What will CPAN be?
  • 20. Will we even use CPAN?
  • 21. Does an 11-year-old distribution model make sense today?
  • 22. Will we pull from github directly?
  • 23. Assume nothing.
  • 24. What will be the same?
  • 25. Assume quot;nothingquot;.
  • 26. Now is the time to join in.
  • 27. The point of the spear is widening.
  • 28. Larry-level genius not necessary
  • 29. Talk to this guy Patrick Michaud
  • 30. Your opportunities to influence Perl 6 are endless.
  • 31. Start building modules
  • 32. Toolchain: module installers, etc
  • 33. DBI

  • 39. Blog
  • 40. Change our language.
  • 41. Start talking about Rakudo, not Perl 6.
  • 42. Start saying quot;Perl 5quot;. It reminds people there's another Perl.
  • 43. Follow Rakudo at rakudo.org
  • 44. Help build the new Rakudo.org
  • 45. The other Only Thing That Matters
  • 46. Perl 5 must continue to thrive and grow.
  • 47. Perl 5 will not disappear when Rakudo rolls out.
  • 48. Help teach that to the world.
  • 49. Perl 5 is still a fantastic software platform.
  • 50. Moose brings the joy of Perl 6 to you today.

  • 53. Continue to create magic awesomeness with Perl 5.
  • 54. Perl 5 will not steal from Perl 6.

  • 63. Oh, and one more thing...
  • 64. The third Only Thing That Matters
  • 65. Be excellent to each other.
  • 66. Perl's crowning achievement = CPAN
  • 67. CPAN = community.
  • 68. Community = people.
  • 69. So by the transitive property...
  • 70. Perl's crowning achievement = people.
  • 71. You have no community if people aren't excellent to each other.
  • 72. Community is what makes Perl > perl.
  • 73. We cannot fragment between Perl 5 and Perl 6.
  • 74. We have a prime opportunity to bring new people into Perl 6.
  • 75. The only things that matter. • Rakudo must come out in 2009. • Perl 5 must continue to thrive and grow. • Be excellent to each other.
  • 76. Thank you. You rock.
