2018.34 A Quick One From Tyndrum

While enjoying some touristic activities in the Northern parts of Scotland (well, North of Glasgow anyway), this Perl 6 Weekly comes from the town of Tyndrum. According to the Wikipedia article:

Thus unusually there are two stations serving the same small village, only a few hundred yards apart, but about 10 miles (16 km) apart by rail.

Which yours truly finds oddly descriptive of the situation in the Perl community: so close, yet seen as so far apart by some.

The Perl Conference in Glasgow

And what an excellent conference it was! And live-streamed as well all over the world. Some blog reports have already surfaced, all of them referencing Perl 6 in some form or another:

By next week, there will be separate videos for each presentation. Until then, you will have to do with the raw recorded live-streams.

Alas, not all things where hunky dory: Mark Keating issued a formal apology for things that had gone wrong (Reddit comments).

Core Developments

Alas, too much R&R to dive into this with the appropriate amount of depth and precision. Hopefully next week a 3-week overview.

Winding Down

Having done a whole-day workshop + a last-minute presentation has taken a lot of energy from your truly. Good thing the weather cooperated for a time by being typical late-summer weather for Glasgow. Please check in again next week for more Perl 6 news!
