  • Commented on Nominate Perl heroes for the 2015 White Camel Awards
    An excellent list Wendy! I'd nominate any of those people too. I might even add Matt Trout for all of the help and education he gives people on IRC....
  • Commented on Try rakudobrew and play with concurrency
    It's worth noting that in jnthn's talk for YAPC::EU 2013, he uses the "async" keyword which is now written as "start" instead....
  • Commented on On prototyping in public ...
    Thanks for the update Stevan! I was wondering just yesterday what the status was of your attempt to add a mop to the Perl 5 core. The only question I have is--what's the earliest version of Perl that could possibly...
  • Commented on Announcing: UAV::Pilot v0.1
    Very, very cool!...
  • Commented on My Catincan funded cpan(1) fastest mirror enhancement
    Neat! Oh, and congrats on being one of the first 25 funded, but it's kind of cheating to fund yourself :-)...
  • Commented on Project notes: Prius hacking.
    Add the ability to save the camera feed somewhere and you’ve got some interesting possibilities. Make the switch and recording accessible via bluetooth and you’ve got some more. :-) Why did you want the reverse camera to display whether you...
  • Commented on A Glimpse Of YAPC::Asia Tokyo 2011
    Thanks for sharing! Your link to the lightning talks is slightly broken, it should be http://yapcasia.org/2011/talk/97...

    I'm quite excited to use this! I wonder if it will be possible to patch rakudobrew to work on Windows.

  • Aristotle commented on Try rakudobrew and play with concurrency

    To be fair, I think that's only the case for micro-benchmarks that compare Perl 6 **built-in** features with the equivalent features provided by bloated/unoptimized/neglected Perl 5 **modules**. For example, Perl 6's built-in Rat type vs Perl 5's Math::BigRat.

    No, actually, that is no longer true. There are cases where Rakudo/MoarVM keeps up with Perl 5 at built-ins, or beats it handily. At built-ins. Check out the benchmarks and see for yourself. There is a little “[Code]” button ne…

    There are cases where Rakudo/MoarVM keeps up with Perl 5 at built-ins, or beats it handily. At built-ins. Check out the benchmarks and see for yourself.

    I only see 3 kinds of micro-benchmarks on that page where Perl 6 comes in faster or as fast as Perl 5:

    1. Empty loops combined with integer arithmetic: while_empty_native, postwhile_nil_native, loop_empty_native

      This seems like an altogether archaic use-case from a P5 point of view (that is, probably not very meaningful with regards to real-life code).

    2. Rational number ar…

    But lets not call it before it happens... :)

    The way I understand these results is “here is proof positive that it can”: a plausible promise. There are still seasons’ worth of low-hanging fruit ahead, anywhere you look, so the fact that we have these results now is an encouraging indicator of how high the effort might be able to reach.

    Before this point, that was always the claim and the idea, and for some people it was the reasonable expectation, but there was no tangible evidence. It remains to be seen if the promise can be fulfilled, but th…

    Two people come to mind that are not on the list yet AFAIK

    Karen "Ether" Etheridge. She's been willing to take on a ton of important CPAN modules that need maintaining but nobody else was willing to step up. Check out her current list of CPAN modules to get the idea:

    You can see she maintains a ton of critical CPAN bits most of us use all the time. She's also on IRC a lot with a strong presence monitoring and helping out.
