This will be a guided "hack session" about getting involved with the development of Rakudo, the first fully-featured Perl 6 implementation, which runs on the Parrot Virtual Machine. There will be a briefing at the beginning of the meeting to bring everyone up to speed and clarify any confusing terminology.

Then we will break into groups and learn-by-hacking on whatever interests the participants. You must be interested in doing something with Perl 6/Rakudo, start now!

The end of the meeting will be a short wrap-up where people voice there experiences working on Rakudo (what needs to be made easier? what rocks? what sucks? what do you want to work on next time?).

PDX.pm normally meets at 7-till-7 (6:53pm) at FreeGeek for roughly an hour or so, then walks a few blocks to the Lucky Labrador Brew Pub for social hour.
