You can find more information on the speaker's site:


“Rakudo Perl” is the Perl 6 compiler targeting the Parrot virtual machine. It currently supports much of Perl 6, and people are even beginning to write applications for it.

This talk will present ways in which you (yes you!) can become active contributors to Perl 6 and Rakudo Perl. We will look in detail at the organization of the Perl 6 test suite, how to add new tests, the structure of the Rakudo Perl implementation, and where to start with writing code for Rakudo.

This talk focuses heavily on Perl 6 itself, and does not include a lot of details about Parrot or its other programming languages. It will be particularly useful for people who are interested in participating in the Oslo Hackathon that follows the workshop, providing a "road map" of the current implementation status and where people can contribute (at many levels).
