  • About: I blog about Perl.
  • Commented on How to write about Perl 6
    “Usable” begs the questions “to whom” and “for what”; the latter being the bigger question. In many senses, those are exactly the sorts of questions I'd like to have begged when someone says "Is Rakudo ready yet?" :-) I doubt...
  • Commented on How to write about Perl 6
    Brian- Your comments are all good ones (and are exactly what I've tried to do in my talks about Perl 6 -- focus on the new cool features, not just the new syntactic improvements). Do you have any suggestion for...
  • Commented on For speakers at Perl conferences...
    I tried recording myself at OSCON with mixed results. I set up an extra microphone (the built-in mic gets too much laptop noise) and used "recordMyDesktop" for Linux. Everything worked great for about 25 minutes, until I tried to open...

    Gabor- I strongly support your efforts, and I think you're headed in the right directions. As Moritz, Audrey, and many others have commented, I sincerely hope you will continue to press forward and find paths through or around the obstructions...

    "Usable" begs the questions "to whom" and "for what"; the latter being the bigger question.

    Is "learnable" the right word to use? I speak as a novice to Perl 6. The people familiar with Perl 6 seem to me to be saying that now is a good time for novices like me to start learning Perl 6. Is my impression correct?

    In other words, if I start learning Perl 6 now, how much will I learn that later becomes wrong, that'll I'll have to re-learn?

    The phrase I'd use for Rakudo Star is "partial prototype." It doesn't include all the features, and the implementation itself will likely change radically before the production-ready release, but what's there does work. And so, "partial prototype" or maybe "developer preview" or something similar.

    Typically, even though I ran a full test before hand, the software crashed at the end of my talk! - So *cheer* for conference organisers (and others) who have uploaded the Perl Talk Videos
