Perl 6

A Dynamic Language for Mere Mortals

With the complete failure of security forces to contain the impending threat of Perl 6, developers are beginning to investigate it themselves. Unfortunately, many of the combatants who wield Camelia are so enraptured that they post long sermons extolling the virtues of hyperoperators, meta-object protocols, and composable concurrency, scaring off the faithful. Those sermons are important. However, it turns out Perl 6 is actually a fairly easy weapon to use and for day-to-day use, it's simple. This talk will take things down a notch or three and show you how simple basic Perl 6 really is. The talk might even be less objectionable than this description.
