Perl 6 has advanced greatly recently and Rakudo, a Perl 6 implementation on the Parrot Virtual Machine, already implements a significant portion of the language. For example, Rakudo has just recently surpassed 10,000 passing tests. Come to this talk to learn how to get involved in the Perl 6/Rakudo community and learn basics like implementing language builtins in Rakudo and PIR (Parrot Internal Representation) and adding tests to the Perl 6 Test Suite.

Why spend all that time fighting/writing code in FORTRAN/C/C++ when you could enjoy writing it in Perl instead?
