Perl 6 book

Reading the description of the new book, Think Perl 6, I see one line "how to program and think like a computer scientist" and in the same week I hear from a friend of mine trying to get into the gig economy and the only jobs he can bid on turn out to be someone's CS assignment. Me starts to think that one way for profs trying to curb students' tendency to False Laziness would be to set assignments in Perl 6, provided they are willing to pick up the language themselves.

There are other approaches. My sibling's prof taught them C in the time it took to say "Your assignments will be submitted in C".

Just a thought.
