Dec 10, 2008 Getting Involved with Rakudo (A Flavor of Perl 6)
Free Geek

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?). 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.

Portland Perl Mongers - Rakudo Perl 6 "Feet Wettening"
Free Geek

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:// $ cd rakudo $ perl --gen-parrot $ make $ make install $ PATH=$PWD/parrot_install/bin/:$PATH $ perl6 -e 'say "Hello World"'

Pacific Northwest Parrot Developers Gathering/Hackathon
Lucky Labrador Brew Pub

Parrot developers have reserved a room for the above times to meet face-to-face to talk about and hack on Parrot Virtual Machine!

The first few hours of the meeting will concentrate on people already involved in Parrot, to talk about which goals Parrot wants to achieve and what people will focus on in the future. Some members of the Board of Directors of Parrot Foundation will be present, and hopefully any local developers that are already involved with Parrot in some way.

The latter half of the time slot will be focused towards new users and people interested in learning more about Parrot. Some Parrot developers will hack on their Parrot-related projects, while others will work with those who are new to Parrot, to orient them and discuss what roles they can play in the Parrot community and/or what things need hacking on.

Hacking and schmoozing will probably continue after 5pm, but that is when our reserved space ends.
