The Perl 6 Fundamentals Video Collection

Video Description

Perl 5 has been heavily influenced by Perl 6 in recent year but Perl 6 is a new language - logo and all. This collection starts with Larry Wall laying it all out for people to see how Perl 6 is so different followed by Jeffrey Goff detailing the basics of how to get rolling on this powerful new language including the brand new metaprogramming system, built-in concurrency, and software-definable grammars, among many other features. From the basics of sigils (the $ signs that so many scratch their heads over) and context, you’ll banish lazy evaluation, march through infinite lists, and stalk the wild hyperoperators.
