Making your Perl 5 Modules work in Rakudo Perl 6

Time: Full day: 09:30 - 17:30
Target audience: Any
Language: English

Have lot of Perl 5 modules that you would like to use in Perl 6? Or want to be able to use a CPAN module of someone else in Perl 6? This Tutorial Session will help you through the steps needed to make a Pure Perl 5 module ready for use in Rakudo Perl 6.

Introduction to Perl 6

Time: Full day: 09:30 - 17:30
Target audience: Intermediate
Language: English

Starting from one-liners like 'Hello, world!' Jeffrey explores all of the programming styles that Perl 6 has on offer, from basic procedural programming to object-oriented style, aspect-oriented, functional programming, and even logic programming. From the basics of sigils (the signs that so many scratch their heads over) and context, you'll banish lazy evaluation, march through infinite lists, and stalk the wild hyperoperators. Jeffrey introduces simple variables and user I/O by way of a guessing game. You'll walk out of the tutorial with a solid grasp of the fundamentals of Perl 6 and an exposure to what lies beyond the world of basic scripting.
