Naoum Hankache has taken the famous perl6intro.com website, which currently provides the same introduction in 13 different languages, to the Raku era at https://raku.guide (/r/rakulang comments). So if your native language is Bulgarian, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian or Turkish, you can learn the basics about the Raku Programming Language in your native language!
Should your native language not be there yet, realize that your fellow native language users will be indebted to you when you create a translation for your native language!
Only one slot left for Advent!
If you intend to write a blog post for this years Raku Advent Calendar, you have to make yourself known soon! As there is only one slot left as of this writing!
