Alas, not all videos of the German Perl and Raku Workshop have been released yet, but these are the ones that are and have (at least some) Raku content:
- Eine Strategie für Perl und Raku by Herbert Breunung (German).
- Sets and Bags, and how NOT to use them by Elizabeth Mattijsen.
- OO in the COR by Curtis Poe.
- Raku Q&A by Elizabeth Mattijsen, Moritz Lenz, Stefan Seifert and Nicholas Clark.
- Querying the Ethereum blockchain nodes with Raku by Konstantin Narkhov.
- Data Science mit Perl und Raku by Sören Laird Sörries (German).
Note that the Raku Q&A was a last-minute change to replace the “Realizing Raku Macros” presentation, which unfortunately could not be given on account of Jonathan Worthington losing his voice and generally feeling awful. We wish them “Gute Besserung”!
Community Affairs Team
The Perl Foundation has announced the intent to create Community Affairs Teams which would have two objectives:
- Managing a community led set of rules on behalf of our communities
- Being able to professionaly respond to issues raised during and outside events and conferences in a timely and appropriate manner
The Perl Foundation would fund training, and a contribution towards event attendance costs. Please check the Slack #tpf-cat channel if you have any questions or suggestions. (/r/perl comments)
- It appears that the repl.it site is trying to support Raku, but for now it just looks like they dropped support for Perl 6 😦
The Raku entries for Challenge #50:
- Overlapping ranges and noble numbers by Luca Ferrari.
- Nobly Merged Raku by Arne Sommer.
- Merge Intervals and Noble Numbers by Laurent Rosenfeld.
- Weekly Challenge #50 by Javier Luque.

A quiet week with the GPaRW and many core developers travelling / preparing their presentations.
- Patrick Böker made
git submoduleupdating a little more platform agnostic.
- Vadim Belman fixed a recently introduced issue that showed up in
OO::Monitorstesting. They also introduced
nqp::takenextdispatcherops that make it possible to chain dispatchers.

- And a few smaller fixes.

Back home from a week in Erlangen, just in time for the weekly about the Raku Programming Language. Otherwise a relatively quiet week, apart from quite a lot of attention for Audrey Tang in the Japanese twitterverse. Please check in again next week, when Jonathan Worthington‘s presentations should be viewable online. Until then, break a leg!
