The only thingthat matters
Frozen Perl 2009
The Only Thing That Matters.
Get Perl 6out this year.
We've had Perl 6for years.
Rakudo is the Parrot implementation.
It releases monthly with Parrot.
But it's not what people think of as being Perl 6.
Not yet, at least.
We are near thecrest of the hill.
Parrot's March release will be Parrot 1.0.
Parrot releases every third Tuesday.
Parrot 1.0 = March 17
We still don't know what Rakudo will be.
What is in a standard Rakudo install?
What will we port from Perl 5 to Perl 6?
Who will create LWP, DBI, etc for Perl 6?
What will thetoolchain be like?
What will CPAN be?
Will we even use CPAN?
Does an 11-year-old distribution model make sense today?
Will we pull from github directly?
What will be the same?
Now is the timeto join in.
The point of the spear is widening.
Larry-level geniusnot necessary
Talk to this guy
Your opportunitiesto influence Perl 6
Start building modules
Toolchain: module installers, etc
Any module you rely on in life.
Close bugs(Jim Keenan rocks at this)
Change our language.
Start talking about Rakudo, not Perl 6.
Start saying "Perl 5".It reminds people
there's another Perl.
Follow Rakudo at rakudo.org
Help build the new Rakudo.org
The otherOnly Thing That
Perl 5 must continue to thrive and grow.
Perl 5 will not disappear when
Rakudo rolls out.
Help teach that tothe world.
Perl 5 is still a fantastic software platform.
Moose brings the joy of Perl 6 to you today.
Catalyst is becoming the framework
Don't want Perl 6?No problem!
Continue to create magic awesomeness
with Perl 5.
Perl 5 will not steal from Perl 6.
Perl 5 will addto Perl 6.
Perl 6 has already added to Perl 5.
Help projects that will keep Perl 5 going.
Perl::Critic will be the basis for Perl6::Critic

Oh, and one more thing...
The thirdOnly Thing That
Be excellentto each other.
CPAN = community.
Community = people.
So by the transitive property...
Perl's crowning achievement = people.
You have no community if people aren't
excellent to each other.
Community iswhat makes
Perl > perl.
We cannot fragment between
Perl 5 and Perl 6.
We have a prime opportunity to bring
new people into Perl 6.
The only things that matter.
Rakudo must come out in 2009. Perl 5 must continue to thrive and grow. Be excellent to each other.
Thank you. You rock.
