Perl 6 documentation and screencast

Perl 6 is new language from Perl community. As always good documentation plays a key role in understanding new language at faster pace. Perl 6 has plenty of resources on official documentation page available on Perl foundation.

I also found some interesting screen casts by Gabor Szabo which were indeed helpful to understand Perl 6 data structures.

Happy learning!

Modern Perl Development and Perl 6


While watching a Perl 6 video on YAPC::EU 2010, I was wondering if year 2010 is going to be big for development in Perl programming or more specifically in Modern Perl based development (Moose,Catalyst etc). There are many new exciting module on Moose/MooseX, DBIx::class, Catalyst etc are uploaded on CPAN every month. I think the biggest news is the release of long awaited Rakudo Star in July 2010. This is a stable, usable Perl 6 implementation on Parrot Virtual Machine. Congratulations to all developers/testers of this project. One can download the tar ball the release from Github. I am going to explore and develop some applications using this exciting new language Perl 6.

I will try to show some exciting features of Perl 6 in my next post.

Happy programming!
