Parrot is the virtual machine intended to run Perl 6 and other dynamic languages efficiently and effectively. The tools used to build “Rakudo” (Perl 6 on Parrot) are powerful and general enough to host other languages on Parrot effectively, and are already being used for Ruby (Cardinal), PHP (Pipp), Python (Pynie), and other languages.

This talk describes the Parrot Compiler Toolkit and demonstrates how to start building a language on Parrot. It is ideal for people who are interested learning more about Perl 6 grammars, hacking on Parrot languages (including Rakudo Perl), or are just curious to know a bit more about how compilers are put together on Parrot.
