In this talk, I'll take a selection of common programming problems and demonstrate how they can be most neatly expressed in Perl 6. And not just any Perl 6, but Perl 6 that you can run today on Rakudo!

I'll start with the somewhat contrived: factorial, rock/paper/scissors and the like. Then there'll be some rather more practical things: sorting, some basic statistics, parsing and more.

No prior knowledge of Perl 6 required; all syntax used will be explained along the way.
