Renens Everyday Perl6

On Sunday 26 April 2015 from 18h30 to 22h00.

Chemin du Closel 5, Renens, Vaud


For most Perl developers, the real and immediate benefit of using Perl 6 is this new (but eerily familiar) programming language just plain eliminates most of the minor annoyances and frustrations that plague our everyday coding.

If you've ever mistyped a sigil, miscounted a subroutine's parameters, mis-used the spooky action-at-a-distance of $_, mis-sorted a numeric list, mis-indented a heredoc, mis-interpolated a variable, mis-typed a regex, or simply misunderstood a sequence of nested subroutine calls, Perl 6 has a kinder, gentler solution for you.

This talk explores some of the most useful, convenient, and un-scary ways in which Perl 6 improves on Perl 5 and offers a dozen practical reasons why Perl 6 might now be a better choice as your everyday go-to problem-solver.


Damian Conway is a prominent member of the Perl community, a proponent of object-oriented programming, and the author of several books. He is also an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Faculty of Information Technology at Monash University.

Damian completed his BSc (with honours) and PhD at Monash. He is perhaps best known for his contributions to CPAN and Perl 6 language design, his entertaining and erudite conference talks, and his Perl programming training courses.

He has won the Larry Wall Award three times for CPAN contributions. His involvement in Perl 6 language design has been as an interlocutor and explicator of Larry Wall.
