High-level programming concepts using Perl 6
A series of presentations on learning and using Perl 6 from the ground up to the special features.
Many would think that Perl 6 is just a new version of Perl and that it might only be interesting for Perl programmers. However, Perl 6 is in fact a compiled language running on a virtual machine that embraces many new concepts not found in most programming languages.
The presentations will be equally interesting for Perl, Java and C# programmers.
During the series of talks we will start by learning the basics of the language and will get to various high level concepts. For now we plan 2 sessions but if we need more time we'll schedule more meetings.
After the talk we will go to the café at the main entrance of the university where we can continue the discussion. If people bring portable computers, we can get the off the ground on the spot. VirtualBox images will be provided with everything that is needed for playing with Perl 6 set up inside. So you may opt to bring a computer with VirtualBox installed.
We are always looking for presentations on interesting topics. If you have an interesting idea for a talk, feel free to contact us and we'll co-ordinate a date.
