Everyday Perl 6

   Perl 6 is a computer scientist’s dream come true. Its many advanced features
   (junctions, multiple dispatch, generics, delegation, grammars, lazy
   evaluation, infinite lists, hyperoperators, first class functions,
   coroutines, partial function application, macros, metadata, etc., etc.)
   offer the elite überhacker entirely new levels of awesome cosmic power.

   Unfortunately, for the majority of us, those incredible new features are
   mostly just mysterious, scary, and off-putting. But all of those new
   features are also entirely optional. You don’t have to start out in Perl 6
   writing autoparallelized infinite superpositions of multimorphic
   higher-order functions. You don’t even have to statically type your
   variables or encapsulate your objects.

   For most Perl developers, the real and immediate benefit of using Perl 6 is
   this new (but eerily familiar) programming language just plain eliminates
   most of the minor annoyances and frustrations that plague our everyday

   If you’ve ever mistyped a sigil, miscounted a subroutine’s parameters,
   mis-used the spooky action-at-a-distance of $_, mis-sorted a numeric list,
   mis-indented a heredoc, mis-interpolated a variable, mis-typed a regex, or
   simply misunderstood a sequence of nested subroutine calls, Perl 6 has a
   kinder, gentler solution for you.

   This talk explores some of the most useful, convenient, and un-scary ways in
   which Perl 6 improves on Perl 5 and offers a dozen practical reasons why
   Perl 6 might now be a better choice as your everyday go-to problem-solver.

Foredraget er for åpent for alle, og inviter gjerne kollegaer og venner! :)
