The Open Source Days Perl 6 Hackathon


About the Perl 6 Hackathon

The Perl 6 Hackathon is organized by the Open Days Conference organizers and Copenhagen Perl Mongers.

The hackathon is and aimed at raising some awareness around Perl 6 and to give people a chance to get some hands-on with Perl 6 assisted by the actual Perl 6 people. In addition, several of the core Perl 6 developers are planning to meet to continue work on the Rakudo Star release.

In addition to the hackathon we are running a short track of Perl talks as part of the OSD conference.

Please see the goals to get an overview of what we plan to achieve.
