I can give a Jupyter vs. Mathematica talk in December if there is
interest. Reply to just me, mark at purdue.edu, with a number of 1 through
5 and I'll summarize on October 30. 1 is don't care and won't attend; 5
is very interested and would plan to attend.
I'm on at least the perl6-bugs-followup at perl6.org list and based on

setting. I'm working on getting it to compile the whole setting. The
setting executes a bunch of code at compile time (it has BEGIN blocks,
constant declarators etc.) so the code the compiler is generated is
validated to some degree (the test suit will exercise it much more).
I'm mostly fixing bugs, and implementing missing features in the backend
(most are small some required bigger changes to the way we handle
things, like nqp::attrinited). While doing that I'm also expanding the
nqp test suite so that new backend implementers have an easier job.
Fixing bugs and missing features found while running the test suit.
Writing a tutorial and making rakudo.js more usable (making sure the
source maps are correct, it installs easily, the error messages it
produces are usable etc.).
When it will be done?
A large part of the work remaining is bug fixing so I find it hard to
provide a reliable estimate. I hope to wrap things up by the end of the
