2018.08 Perl 6’ya Giriş

Yalın Pala has created a Turkish translation of Naoum Hankache‘s Perl 6 Introduction, which gives you a quick overview of the Perl 6 programming language, enough to get you up and running. This now brings the total of translations to 10: Bulgarian, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish and now Turkish. A fine body of work!

German Perl Workshop

The German Perl Workshop 2018 will be happening on 4-6 April, at the Campus Gummersbach of the Technische Hochschule Köln, followed by a Perl 6 Hackathon on the 7th of April. Although not yet on the program officially yet, there will be a full day Perl 6 workshop given as well. And the Call for Papers has been extended to the 10th of March! So this is the moment to propose your Perl 6 related presentations! Please check it out!

Granada Perl Workshop

It appears yours truly completely missed the Granada Perl Workshop last weekend. JJ Merelo had this to say about it on FaceBook:

We have had a fine day in front of the Alhambra loving Perl. Several talks on Perl and Perl 6, including great introductions, history, Perl for Windows and programming IRC bots, concurrency in Perl 6, all in all, a great experience. It’s been the second conference we’ve had in Granada, won’t be the last one. Here’s the album I have created, you can also check the #love4perl hashtag in social networks.

Curating and Improving Perl 6 Documentation

JJ Merelo has submitted a grant proposal for the improvement of the Perl 6 documentation. Please check out the discussion about the pro and cons of this proposal.

More Perl 6 Performance and Reliability

The grant that Jonathan Worthington requested has been approved by the Board of Directors of the Perl Foundation. So expect some really cool things to happen in the coming weeks/months on top of the excellent work that so many others are already contributing to Rakudo Perl 6.

UDP Datagram API, an RFC

Timo Paulssen would like to see comments on his proposal for an API providing source address and port of UDP datagrams. If you’d like to say anything about that, now is the time!

    Winding Down

    Unfortunately, yours truly is still recovering from a bad cold. Enough to have a woolly head that is incapable of handling complex information. So no core developments section from me this week, will cover this week’s core developments next week. See you then!
