Perl 6 hackathon

On the 13th of August (Saturday) we are hosting the Perl 6 hackathon.

The Perl 6 hackathon is a one day event for those who want to look at internals of Perl 6 and its development process. There will be people who are responsible for Perl 6 design, specification and implementation, and Rakudo developers. The hackathon will be held in a meeting room in the hotel located in Old Town. Snacks and beer included. Please add this talk to your personal schedule (click the star) if you are going to attend it so that we know which kind of room to book for it.

The Perl 6 hackathon is one of our delighted events: previously we had a very successful hackathon on Perl 6 in Kiev, and we are going to have one more this May during YAPC::Russia in Moscow.

The Perl 6 hackathon is free. All you need there are your laptop and a passion for Perl 6.
