Portland Perl Mongers - Rakudo Perl 6 "Feet Wettening"
Most classes require prior sign up. Please check in at the front desk when you arrive to let them know you are here for the class. Bags must be checked at the front entrance.
The Rakudo * release of Perl 6 on Parrot is almost here. Whether you want to get your own feet wet, or help wetten someone else's feet, join us to write some Perl 6 code and share some learning.
We'll begin with introductions, cover some basics, and then work in small groups or pairs for about an hour, followed by a recap, then (of course) beer.
If you can bring a laptop, download and install rakudo ahead of time:
$ git clone git://github.com/rakudo/rakudo.git $ cd rakudo $ perl Configure.pl --gen-parrot $ make $ make install $ PATH=$PWD/parrot_install/bin/:$PATH $ perl6 -e 'say "Hello World"'
