Over the past eighteen months Damian has revisited some of his most popular Perl 5 modules and reimplemented them in “native” Perl 6.

In this talk he will walk through the changes needed to port several of those modules, a journey that gives a surprisingly thorough overview of how the two languages differ, as well as insights into the relative strengths of each.

Excellent session. I didn’t even try to take notes; I was afraid I would miss something. Time to try out rakudo again.
