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

Documentation for any computer language works at several different levels, just like the Perl onion. There's the source, the text itself, and then there's the tooling to publish it in a web site. Of course, there's the people working on it too. That's three layers that form a complex technosocial system.
I've been working on and off the Perl 6 documentation for several months, but I didn't start to really understand how everything works and fits together until I started the grant by the beginning of April 2018. Here's 10, or maybe eleven by the time I get to give the talk, things I've learned while working for this grant. First lesson: we need more people to be involved. So this is also an invitation to help with Perl 6 through its documentation.
