Leon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.

More about dynamic languages

[ #33888 ]
An update to dynamic languages on virtual machines. One more data point, Mozilla just announced IronMonkey, a project to map IronPython and IronRuby to Tamarin (what will become the new JavaScript virtual machine in Mozilla). I'm not a huge fan of pre-announcing projects, but JavaScript, Python, Ruby appear to be on every virtual machine out there. Why isn't Perl? Why aren't they on Parrot?
