Perl 6

Patrick Michaud will talk about the Perl 6 programming language from a variety of perspectives, and targeting a number of different audiences.

Patrick will look at some of the changes and improvements that Perl 6 has made as a language over previous versions of Perl, as well as many of the technical details of its implementation.

Along the way he'll also take a look at Parrot, and see how it is progressing to become a common runtime platform for Perl, Python, PHP, Ruby, Javascript, and many other dynamic languages.
